Resolution Approving the Proposed Certificate in PK-3

Whereas, the Hawai`i DOE’s strategic plan calls for qualified PK-3 teachers in K-6 schools, in light of recent national recognition of the unique qualifications necessary to effectively teach at the pre-kindergarten to grade 3 level; and

Whereas, the proposed PK-3 Certificate program will provide teachers with professional in-service training and certification desired by the DOE; and

Whereas, the proposed PK-3 Certificate consists of five required existing 3-credit courses, thus imposing no additional cost on the College of Education;

Therefore, be it resolved that the Manoa Faculty Senate approves the creation of a Graduate Certificate in pre-kindergarten through grade 3 education (PK-3) in the College of Education, University of Hawai`i at Manoa.
