CELL (Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning) has announced a new program to increase the number of fully-qualified special education teachers in Indiana. (I-SEAL)
This will include:

Upon completion, they will be eligible for a special education license, pending a passing score on the state licensing exam.
- A limited number of unlicensed teachers who wish to earn a special education teacher license and currently hold a bachelor’s degree will be eligible to enroll in a fully-funded Transition to Teaching program (T2T).
- Individuals who have completed a special education preparation program but have been unable to pass the state licensing exam will have the opportunity to participate in special test-prep workshops to assist in obtaining the licensure cut score on the exam
