Private schools are required to ensure that their teaching staff meets the qualification standards established in section 1002.421(2) Florida Statutes.
In order to meet the minimum requirement for instructors at a participating private school, an individual must possess at least one of the following qualifications:
1. Is a bachelor's degree in education required for teachers in participating private schools? No. Individuals with a bachelor's degree in any major are qualified to teach in participating private schools.
2. Can employment as an early childhood instructor be counted toward the teaching experience requirement?
No. The experience must be earned as a K-12 teacher in a public or private school.
3. What qualifies as special skills, knowledge, or expertise?
Participating private schools may employ as teachers individuals who do not meet either of the previous requirements if they possess a skill set that makes them well-suited for specific courses. For example, a native French speaker may have knowledge and expertise that would qualify him or her to instruct French language courses.
