The document, “Library Teacher Licensure in Massachusetts,” can be found on MSLA’s website at http://www.maschoolibraries.org/uploads/5/7/2/2/57223027/librarylicensurema.pdf. The information was compiled by Carol Kelly, Lisa Estabrook, Donna Guerin, and Elaine Mokrzycki. MSLA Board members Carrie Tucker, Chani Craig, Jennifer Reed, and Jennifer Varney edited and formatted the information.
The document provides information on the following:
- paths to licensure
- graduate programs
- links to DESE information
- the nine “areas of coverage” that DESE requires for certification and how to meet them
- notes about upcoming changes to the certification process
It is MSLA’s hope that having this information in one place will help clarify a confusing process. We hope you find it useful!
