MSDE will now accept eScript Transcripts. eScripts must be sent directly from the college or university to the Office of Certification. You should authorize the transcripts to be sent to Kenneth Kuyawa, Personnel Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. eScripts sent directly to the educator or phot copy of the electronic transcript will not be accepted.
Assistant Principals – Administrator I Certification
Effective July 1, 2006 staff will need to hold an endorsement in Administrator I certification in order to be assigned as an Assistant Principal.
Principal Certification Reciprocity from another State
Beginning for the hiring year 2005-2006, MSDE will accept individuals who hold a valid professional out-of-state certificate with certification as a principal and verification of three years of full-time satisfactory experience as a principal within the past seven years. For these individuals, no SLLA test is required.
