Candidate admission to the MGRESA Endorsement Program requires the following:
- A valid, level 4 or higher Professional, Advanced Professional, or Lead Professional teaching certificate, leadership certificate, Life certificate, or service certificate with a recommendation to serve as a TSC from a local unit of administration or school administrator is required for program admission. Educators admitted to the program holding leadership, Life, or service certificates must have held a Professional teaching certificate.
This is a job-embedded program. Candidates must practice mentoring and coaching skills with assigned mentees and groups.
The Endorsement is divided into two courses consisting of 5 PLUs each and must be taken in sequence. Completion of the two courses is required in order to add the TSS endorsement to an existing level 4 professional teaching certificate or higher.
