READING ENDORSEMENT UPDATES
House Bill 7055: On November 15, 2019, the State Board of Education approved an amendment to rule 6A-4.0292, F.A.C., Specialization Requirements for the Reading Endorsement-Academic Class. The amendment will allow teachers who receive a passing score on the Reading Subject Area Exam to be awarded the Reading Endorsement without completing the previously required coursework. Please note, we are awaiting additional technical assistance on this amendment from the Bureau of Educator Certification (BEC) and will share any information we receive from the state. The full memo can be found here.
