SDE: Elementary Cross-Endorsement

Approved Courses for Elementary Cross-Endorsement

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

State regulations for elementary cross-endorsement require 30 semester hours of course work specifically related to elementary education including six semester hours of credit in language arts, which may include reading, writing, speaking, listening and spelling and six semester hours of credit in child growth and development. Please note, bold face courses are acceptable courses to meet the six credit child growth and development requirement. Three semester hours of credit must be specific to child growth and development only (bold face courses). Up to three semester hours of credit may come from the additional courses listed as Human Growth and Development Courses.

Student teaching courses are no longer acceptable courses for cross-endorsement purposes. Practica, Internships, and Field Experience may be acceptable depending upon length, responsibility, and supervison of the experience. Consideration of these courses will be given on a case by case basis, and must be approved by the Bureau of Educator Standards and Certification.
