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 Oklahoma 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 mild/moderate disabilities. Participants will be committed 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?

The application process for micro-credential will start with the district's Superintendent or Human Resource Officer. The application for micro-credential can be found on Single Sign On

Once the application is approved by the Office of Teacher Certification, the applicant will receive a provisional certificate and will be contacted by the Office of Special Education Services with their micro-credential login information. 

Within two years, complete the micro-credential program and apply for standard certification in the endorsement area of severe/profound. The state content area assessment (OSAT) is not required.
