Teacher Licensing

 

Licensure is a condition of employment for all certified/licensed positions at American Leadership Academy. It is the responsibility of the employee to properly obtain and maintain a current license with the state of Utah. Educator licenses and content endorsements are issued by the Utah State Board of Education. We employ educators with an LEA-Specific license/endorsement.

 

“The following designations or levels apply to educator licenses, license areas (i.e.-elementary, secondary, special education), and content endorsements (i.e.-mathematics, music, Spanish, social studies):

1. Professional: The educator has completed an educator preparation program that includes content and pedagogical knowledge.  This program may have been completed at a university or in an alternate pathway that was supported by school districts/charters and the Utah State Board of Education.

2. Associate: The educator is currently completing an educator preparation program, but has not yet complete all requirements for a Professional Educator License, license area, or endorsement. The educator is enrolled in a university-based or Local Education Agency (LEA)-based program.  When the educator completes the program, they will have a professional level.

3. LEA Specific:  The educator has not completed an educator preparation and is not currently enrolled in one.”
