Educator feedback is needed on changes being considered to the structure of Michigan teacher certification by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Professional Preparation Services.
The proposal primarily would reduce the grade-level ranges for certification to allow for greater focus in teacher preparation programs. The structure under consideration is the result of 18 months of research, data collection, and K- 12 and higher education stakeholder feedback.
Please watch the Proposed Certification Structure Video before completing the survey in order to learn more about this model. The video is approximately 20 minutes long.
All feedback must be submitted online by 5:00 p.m., June 5, using the Proposed Certification Structure Survey. For additional information, please contact Kelli Cassaday at CassadayK@michigan.gov or 517-335-5854.
