Early Childhood Generalist (4-5) Endorsement

Early Childhood Generalist (4-5) Endorsement 

The State Board of Education adopted a change to Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3301-24-05 to enable Early Childhood (Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3) license holders to broaden the scope of their licenses to include the fourth and fifth grades. The addition of the Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement to an Early Childhood license provides school districts with greater staffing flexibility, Early Childhood teachers with additional teaching options, and facilitates the mobility of teachers into Ohio from other states.

The Endorsement is available completely online for $478/credit. Nine total graduate credits must be completed in the following courses:
  • EDG 501 - Adolescent Development and Education in Grades 4 & 5 (5-week course)
  • EDG 503 - Language Arts & Social Studies Methods in Grades 4 & 5 (8-week course)
  • EDG 502 - Mathematics & Science Methods in Grades 4 & 5 (8-week course)
Admission requirements include:
  • Currently hold an Ohio Early Childhood (P-3) teaching license
  • Meet all Ursuline Graduate School admission requirements
