Durational Shortage Area Permit (DSAP) authorizes service in CT boards of education when applicants have been determined to be missing requirements for the certification area being taught. To qualify for DSAP, a bachelor’s degree from a regionally-accredited higher education institution is required and 12 semester hours of credit must be completed in the area to be taught.
Enrollment in an approved preparation program is required. A DSAP must be requested by a public school district and is issued for one year on behalf of an applicant and may be renewed up to two additional times.
