Per section 1012.575, F.S., only school districts have statutory authority to have state approved add-on endorsement programs whereby teachers can complete the endorsement requirements via inservice points. All other (including non-public) school teachers can add an endorsement to their certificate, but only through the college credit route. Private school teachers may take the “endorsement” courses offered for inservice points, but they won’t be able to use them to add the endorsement to their certificate.
