Beginning in the fall of 2019, Bethany will offer a teacher licensure program in K-12 Physical Education. Bethany education students who complete the program, and other state requirements, are eligible to apply for a Minnesota teaching license for grades K through 12 physical education. These graduates would be able to be hired as physical education teachers within districts for elementary, middle, or high schools.
The process to add the program is a culmination of a year and a half of work with the Minnesota Professional Educators’ Licensing Board (PELSB). The structure of the program is unique among programs offering the physical education licensure.
