Standard Arkansas Teaching Route (AK)

You need to login or register to save this route.


The traditional route to educational licensure authorizes the applicant to teach in Arkansas public schools after completing a teacher-training program approved by the state and following 1-3 years of teaching experience. The initial step in qualifying for the Standard Teacher Certification is obtaining an Initial license upon completion of a teacher preparation program and meeting the student teaching requirements. Once the Initial Teaching License is obtained and a teaching position is secured,  the candidate begins a 1-3 year induction period under the supervision of a site-based, trained mentor. The candidate can advance to the final examination only upon the mentor’s recommendation. Passing the final examination makes the candidate eligible to convert the Initial license to a Standard Teaching License.
