Metro State is now the Designated Agency for alternative licensure for Littleton Public Schools. Here is the process an applicant for alternative licensure must follow:
1. A review of your official transcripts must be completed by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). CDE issues a Statement of Eligibility or SOE to you upon a successful transcript review for the subject areas in which you are interested. You must meet all subject area requirements before entering the program. Contact Ed Almon: Almon_E@cde.state.co.us or Barb Lautenbach: Lautenbach_B@cde.state.co.us.
2. Secondary candidates no longer must have a successful transcript review AND pass the content area PLACE/PRAXIS exam. Either one of these two requirements will meet the Statement of Eligibility requirement AND the Initial Colorado teaching license requirement.
3. Elementary candidates must pass the Elementary PLACE or Praxis test. There is no transcript review requirement for either elementary candidates.
4. Special Education candidates must pass the Elementary PLACE or PRAXIS exam to enroll in the CASEL program AND they must pass the PLACE or PRAXIS Special Education Generalist exam prior to finishing the CASEL program in order to receive their Special Education Generalist license. There is no transcript review requirement for special education candidates.
5. Complete an on-line Littleton Public School teacher application. Go to Job Postings/Applicant Process and attach your completed application to all jobs of interest to you. Attach transcripts, reference letters, resume, etc., per directions.
6. Obtain an interview for a teaching position at one of our schools. Jobs are posted on the LPS website at Job Postings/Applicant Process. Attach your completed application to all jobs of interest to you.
7. Obtain a teaching contract at one of our schools.
8. Upon obtaining a teaching contract, candidates then enroll in the Metro State Alternative Licensure Program.
