A Statement of Eligibility is not a certificate. The Florida Department of Education lists out all requirements to be issued both a Temporary Certificate and a Professional Certificate. A temporary certificate is the document you receive once you have been hired and hold an Eligible SOE.
If your Statement of Eligibility reflects a ‘Not Eligible’ status, it is recommended that you take your Subject Area Exam, as passing this will aid in eligibility.
You will get your Professional Certificate once you have completed the program, passed all state required exams and created a FEAPS Portfolio.
Certification requirements vary state to state. To determine the reciprocation policies and procedures, please contact the state’s department of education.
