If you are a Level 1 educator teaching in Utah, you must take and pass the PRAXIS Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) within the first three years of your career in order to get a Level II teaching license. Additionally, educators must pass a content exam to demonstrate “highly qualified” status.
For resources to help prepare for the Praxis exam, UEA members should contact their UniServ for more information and a schedule of Praxis test prep classes.
For questions regarding what specific content exam you need to take, please contact your school district’s human resources department.
For more information regarding educator licensing, contact the Utah State Office of Education www.schools.utah.gov/cert/.
