Reading Endorsement
The K-12 reading endorsement program for Bay District Schools includes 5 courses "competencies",  each of which includes specific indicators (objectives).  The first two competencies build on foundational knowledge about reading and research-based practices.  The remaining competencies broaden that knowledge by applying the skills to various learner groups and to various tasks.  Competency 5 is a field-based practicum supervised by district staff.  As funding is available, Bay District pays for on-line courses through BEACON EDUCATOR for qualified teachers.
