McKinley Elementary employs educators that hold a variety of LEA-Specific educator licenses, license areas, and/or endorsements.
The various educator licenses issued by the Utah State Board of Education are as follows:
LEA-Specific License: An LEA-Specific educator license, including areas of concentration and endorsements, is issued by the state board at the request of an LEA’s governing body (i.e.-local school board) that is valid for an employee to fill a position in the LEA if other licensing routes for the applicant are untenable or unreasonable. The LEA governing board agrees to provide the documentation and support outlined in the Utah Office of Administrative Rules
Associate Educator License: The AEL is for anyone who wants to become a Utah teacher, but has not completed an educator preparation program (university-based or alternate program).
Professional License: A professional educator license, license area, or endorsement is valid for five years. It requires that an educator has a bachelor's degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution or skill certification in a specific CTE area and one of the following: a recommendation from the board-approved preparation program or a standard educator license in the area issued by a licensing jurisdiction outside of Utah that is currently or is renewable consistent with Section 53E-6-307
