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.
