Praxis Core Update

February 18, 2018

Update regarding Praxis CORE

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.
