complete the program

  • You will attend an orientation through Zoom to discuss program features including your Degree Completion Plan (DCP). Remember that your DCP is a contract between the state of Kansas, your employing school, and MNU. Deviation from the DCP is prohibited and may result in disqualification from the program.

  • Work closely with your on-site Mentor (appointed by your employing school) and the MNU Supervisor. The MNU Supervisor will evaluate your teaching twice each semester. Please monitor MNU email for communication with your MNU Supervisor.

  • Maintain Continual Progress in your program as identified in the Graduate School policies, KSDE regulations, and MNU Professional Teacher Education Program Policies. For all T2T students a 3.0 minimum GPA is required and no grade lower than a B-.

  • After successful completion of the two-year program, teacher work sample, and all licensure tests (content and pedagogy), candidates may apply for full licensure through KSDE. KSDE will issue the license that you are eligible for – either an Initial License or a Professional License. They will make that determination based on whether you held a restricted license for a full two years and were in the same district for the full two years. If that is the case, you will receive a Professional License because you would have been mentored for a full two years while in the program. If you receive an Initial License, then you will need to complete the mentoring requirement with your district during the next school year.
