Literacy Specialist (Grades P-12), Endorsement Preparation Program
Endorsement Preparation Programs
These are programs of study which prepare the candidate, upon recommendation from EKU, for professional endorsement by the Commonwealth of Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB.) Endorsements are opportunities to increase an educator's instructional repertoire in specialized areas, such as English as a Second Language (ESL), Gifted and Talented (GT), literacy specialist, and teacher leader. Endorsements can be earned toward a rank change. In some cases, the endorsement may be earned as part of a degree program (MAEd Middle Grade, MAEd Secondary, MAEd School Librarian).
