Professional Educator Certificate Requirements to Change in 2016

Per the CT State Department of Education

Section 36 of P.A. 12-116 requires anyone applying for a professional educator certificate on and after July 1, 2016, to have completed a master's degree in an appropriate subject matter area related to such person's certification endorsement area, as determined by the State Board of Education, in order to be issued a professional educator certificate.

The CSDE, in consultation with the Educator Preparation Advisory Council, will be developing a policy related to "appropriate subject matter degrees" and will seek State Board approval for such policy. Once approved, these guidelines on appropriate subject matter degrees will be provided and applied.
