    COVID UPDATE FOR THOSE SEEKING CERTIFICATION who completed their student teaching in fall 2019 or spring 2020 or have completed all requirements of their ACP but have not been able to test due to testing site closures.  Governor Abbott has issued waivers to allow certain candidates to qualify for a one-year probationary certificate so that they may be certified for the 2020/21 school year without meeting testing requirements.  Tentative window for application for this waiver is May 15th through June 15th.  After June 15th, candidates must meet all requirements for standard certification, including testing requirements.
