New endorsement structure is coming February 1, 2018 for the Middle School Endorsement. To give those wanting to get this endorsement before the new rules take affect we are offering the 2 Middle School courses through Aurora University again this summer. Please note that these courses will not allow you to add an endorsement following the February 1, 2018 deadline however it will allow you to add the endorsement before that date.
