Summer Reading Endorsement Course Offerings

Pasco County Schools offers five reading endorsement courses throughout the school year and summer to provide our teachers an opportunity to add the endorsement to their teaching certificate. In order to receive the endorsement, teachers complete courses that develop their understanding of the foundations of language, research of best practices, assessment, and differentiation in reading, as well as a semester practicum. Once all five courses are successfully completed, teachers can add the endorsement to their certificate.

Attached is a document that lists the courses offered this summer, their myPGS course number, and details about dates that the courses run for the summer. If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Hatten.

Principal Approved Assessment (PAA)- Semester Exam

Attached is a searchable database that identifies courses requiring a Principal Approved Assessment (PAA) when there is no other course standards assessment in place. Please take a look at this document to determine if you will be administering a PAA.

An assessment can be approved, by the principal or designee, as long as the following requirements are met:

  • The assessment is a valid format (ie: selected response, constructed response, project-based assessments, adjudicated performances, practical application assignments or any combination).
  • The teacher has justified that the assessment is aligned to standards assigned to this course.
  • The assessment measures student mastery of content at the necessary level of rigor for the course.
  • Scoring procedures and/or rubrics accompany the assessment.

It is the responsibility of the teacher to present the assessment to their supervising administrator prior to Monday, May 7, 2018. If you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact your supervising administrator.
