The Pennsylvania Department of Education is pleased to announce that we are offering a Grades 5-6 testing add-on option for the Grades PK-4 certificate only.   Interested PreK-4 teacher preparation candidates may take two modules:

    The Grades 4-8: Module 2 – English Language Arts & Social Studies (5154)

    The Grades 4-8: Module 3 – Mathematics & Science (5155)

Candidates may take these modules during or after the PK-4 program and apply for them simultaneously, but the evaluation of the Grades Prek-4 requirements will be evaluated first and the Grades 5-6 add on certificate will only be granted once the PK-4 certificate is approved.  Refer prospective candidates to the
