Under the public health crisis’s social distancing requirements, educator certification testing centers have been closed for extended periods or operating at significantly reduced capacity, limiting the ability of educators and educator candidates to complete certification exam requirements necessary to receive certification. Additionally, preparation programs may be unable to complete requirements for in-person clinical experiences and observations for the upcoming school year. To manage the impact of the public health crisis on educator certification and preparation programs, Governor Abbott has suspended certain requirements to provide flexibility for candidates, districts, and educator preparation programs for the 2020-21 school year.
