😁 I thought you would like to hear directly
from the state DOE about a welcomed change.
Governor Carney signed HB 143 into law on 6/20/17. This bill has eliminated the requirement of Praxis Core (Praxis I) for Licensure. It has also eliminated the Provisional License. Educators with no experience who are receiving their first License will receive a four (4) year Initial License, and will have two school years to complete the Performance Assessment requirement.
Below, we have provided some answers to the questions you may have regarding these changes, please click here.
ARTC offers an alternative to the traditional route to teacher certification in Delaware. Through ARTC, qualified individuals complete certification requirements while they are employed as full-time teachers, through a state-approved program of professional education course work, accompanied by intensive, school-based supervision and mentoring in lieu of student teaching.
