216 License Summer Institute

May 1, 2012

In October, 2010, the Mississippi State Board of Education (SBE) approved a renewable 216 License for speech/language teachers to go into effect beginning July, 2013. Shortly thereafter, the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) and the Board of Trustees of the State Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) appointed a task force to make recommendations regarding the implementation of processes related to the 216 License. The work of the task force was presented to the SBE in March 2012.

To qualify for the 216 License, individuals must have a bachelor’s degree in communication sciences and disorders (speech and hearing science, speech language pathology, etc.) with appropriate coursework and 100 hours of supervised practicum. The 216 License holders will be limited to working with children with articulation disorders and will work under the direction of, and in collaboration with, a certified speech-language pathologist (215AA and/or ASHA CCC-SLP)

To allow for the transition of those individuals with emergency or interim certificates to the 216 license, the MDE is providing education and practicum offerings during the Summer of 2012 and across the 2012-13 school year. Additionally, the MDE will offer educational opportunities for the potential mentors/supervisors of the 216 License holders.
