If you want to add an Early Childhood Special Education Endorsement or a K-12 Special Education endorsement to your current SD teaching license, you must consult with the Program Director to determine the mechanism for meeting the state-designated pedagogy requirement.

Information about the state requirements are included on the SD Department of Education website.

If it is determined that you need to complete the practicum, you will complete the Practicum Approval Process at least one semester before the practicum is scheduled.

The practicum is completed post-degree.

Completing this practicum will allow you to fulfill the final requirements for the Early Childhood Special Education or the K-12 Special Education endorsement.
