Special Education

  Critical Needs Areas *

The critical needs areas are certification areas in which there is an anticipated shortage of teachers.  These areas are identified each spring or summer by the Commissioner of Education for the upcoming school year. As a result, these areas are subject to change.  Areas listed as “critical needs” on our website are anticipated for the application cycle.   For a complete and updated list visit TEA Teacher Shortage Areas 2016-2017.

Note: Program requirements are subject to change at any time based upon new rules, policies and regulations from the Texas Education Agency: Educator Certification.
