Our community college colleagues really appreciated the information we have shared collectively about our current requirements for the pre-professional skills test etc. in response to HF 2359. This information is helpful to them as they advise and prepare their students for transfer into our programs. There has been a request to add information to this document about clinical/observation hour requirements for teacher education program admittance (Have there been any changes? Can students fulfill this requirement through virtual hours or working as tutors with K-12 students as they complete work online?). If a program representative could take the time to add this information to this document it would be much appreciated.
