  1. Demonstrate mastery of reading, writing and mathematics skills through nationally normed assessments, a professional skills portfolio, or accredited college coursework, among other methods of demonstrating skills mastery.
  2. An alternative licensure pathway for non-native English speakers seeking licensure to teach in a language immersion program.
