Certification for ASL Teachers in Florida...
Florida Department of Education and the Task
Force established by the state Legislature have established criteria for all
K-12 teachers of ASL in Florida. Teachers will need either ASLTA National
Certification, or completion of a set
of 6 specified college courses by July
1, 2009, in order to continue teaching ASL in K-12 schools. There is no "grandfather" provision
for existing ASL teachers.
Helpful note: ASLTA certification is done in 3 steps - Provisional, Qualified, Professional. The Professional level requires an in-person interview with ASLTA evaluators. ASLTA evaluations are generally done every two years during the ASLTA Professional Development Conference, and may be available more often
via a local ASLTA Chapter.
