Micro-Credential Route to Severe-Profound Certification

Micro-credentials provide a pathway to professional growth, increase employability,
and develop teacher leaders. Redefining the professional learning experience,
micro-credentials shift the emphasis from seat time to demonstrated competence.
Licensed educators learn, practice, receive feedback and demonstrate mastery of standards
leading to severe/profound certification.


The Prerequisite

The State Board of Education shall issue a two-year provisional certificate in the endorsement area of severe-profound disabilities to any individual who has obtained a standard certificate in the endorsement area of mild-moderate and commits to completing a state-approved micro-credential program to severe-profound endorsement within two years. SB 1436 Section 4 (A)

I have the prerequisite. How can I sign up?

Complete the  Application to the Micro-Credential Severe-Profound Endorsement Program. 

Print and mail the MCSPE Program application to:

Oklahoma State Department of Education
Teacher Certification Office - Room 212

Submit other program applications directly to the state-approved provider.
