o    Recommendation Forms: please have the individual completing the recommendation form email it directly to Jayme Barton at with your name in the subject line.  

o    CSET and CBEST testing is also on hold, however we will be able to accept students to the program without this requirement, if they complete an Exceptional Admit (EA) form along with their regular application. We will ask that within the EA you outline a plan for taking these exams as soon as you possibly can. Please include registration dates if possible. It is still a state requirement that you must have completed both of these exams or the equivalent of them prior to your final stage of student teaching, we cannot make exceptions to this rule at this time. *Completion of an Exceptional Admit form does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
