Update: MDE 216 Licensure for Speech/Lang Teacher

On August 20, 2010, the Mississippi State Board of Education approved the recommendation by the Licensure Commission to begin the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) process for approval of a new five year renewable license on the Bachelor’s level for Speech/Language Teacher with licensure endorsement 216 (limited to articulation therapy).  Click Here to view the proposed license.

The APA process is a period of time set aside for public comment.  All comments must be submitted by September 30, 2010.

MSHA has formally submitted APA comments and is scheduled to meet with Dr. Burnham and other MDE officials to address issues of concern.
