To begin the application process, you must first review and agree to the contents of the INSPIRE TEXAS handbook as well as the statement below regarding the Texas Education Agency’s new certification exam.
The link for reviewing the handbook is provided below.
Starting January 2021, aspiring teacher candidates will need to take the Science of Teaching Reading exam (STR), if pursuing certification in an elementary or middle school content area.
I acknowledge that I have read and agree to the contents of the INSPIRE TEXAS Handbook (including the Texas Educator Code of Ethics).
I acknowledge that if pursuing certification in any of the areas bolded below, all certification requirements such as but not limited to program fees, class assignments, training, TEA fingerprinting/certificate purchasing, Internship/Clinical Teaching, & required state exam(s), must be completed by 11:59 pm on December 10, 2020 to avoid the need to take/pass the new state mandated STR exam. (The last day of school for fall 2020 Clinical Teaching will be on December 16, 2020 however, all other program requirements will need to be met by the aforementioned date/time.) I acknowledge that if all program requirements are not completed by December 10, 2020, I will be required to take and pass the new state mandated STR exam for certification.
The impacted certification areas are as follows:
EC–6 Core Subjects
4–8 Core Subjects
