HOW CAN I FULFILL THE SECOND LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT FOR THE EL AUTHORIZATION OR CLAD CERTIFICATE?

Individuals who hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited college or university are deemed to have satisfied the second language requirement. If you do not hold a bachelor's degree, there are 16 different options for satisfying the second language requirement. These options are described in detail on credential leaflet CL-628C Crosscultural, Language, And Academic Development (CLAD) Certificate [PDF].

HOW DO I RENEW MY EL/CLAD OR BILINGUAL AUTHORIZATION?

The English learner and Bilingual Authorizations do not need to be renewed. The authorization shall remain in force as long as the valid prerequisite credential or permit is held concurrently.
