Central Washington University

Reading Endorsement Option 

The Literacy Program within the College of Education and Professional Students at Central Washington University is proud to offer a reading endorsement option for certified teachers. Because the assignments in each course are tailored to each certified teacher’s current position, the program is appropriate for teachers who teach through grade 12.

Teachers from outside the state of Washington will need to verify with their state’s department of education if this program meets the guidelines for endorsement in that state.

This program is delivered completely on-line. With continuous enrollment, the certified teacher can earn the Washington State P-12 Reading Endorsement through PESB in five (5) quarters.
