Outcomes from 4/19/13 webinar

  • Welcome and Introductions
    • All members introduced self and affiliation.
  • Review of the charge from the Board:
    • Create scenarios for the top 5 most frequently combined endorsements.
    • Scenarios are to help candidate's decision making when considering exiting a teacher prep program with multiple endorsements.
    • Scenarios will be made available to candidates.
  • Purpose of the group
    • PESB staff has been directed by our Board members to prepare scenarios that might guide candidates for the most frequently combined endorsements. The scenarios developed will help candidates that are considering exiting their program with multiple endorsements make a responsible decision to complete such a task. The scenarios will reflect the top 5 commonly paired endorsements and what the candidates will need to complete to earn both endorsements. The short scenarios will be made available to all institutions to give to their candidates considering multiple endorsements.
