The Reading Teacher Endorsement requires 24 hours of course work. Additional courses in this endorsement area are offered in the Spring and Summer.

The Reading Teacher Endorsement is the minimum requirement for anyone assigned to teach reading who is not teaching reading as part of general classroom instruction. An individual who holds or receives an Illinois early childhood, elementary, secondary, or special certificate is eligible to receive this additional endorsement on an existing certificate.

Courses offered in the Reading Teacher Endorsement are on file at the Illinois State Board of Education. Endorsement will be confirmed through transcript evaluation by ISBE. Candidates may not need to take all 24 credit hours if course work previously completed is approved by ISBE. For current information regarding Illinois State Board of Education requirements (including any applicable tests), please visit ISBE at www.isbe.net.
