The following designations or levels apply to educator licenses, license areas (i.e.-elementary, secondary, special education), and content endorsements (e.g.-mathematics, music, Spanish, social studies).

  • Professional: The educator has completed an educator preparation program that includes content and pedagogical knowledge. This program may have been completed at a university or in an alternate pathway that was supported by school districts/charters and the Utah State Board of Education.
  • Associate: The educator is currently completing an educator preparation program, but has not yet completed all requirements for a Professional Educator License, license area, or endorsement. The educator is enrolled in a university-based or Local Education Agency (LEA)-based program. When the educator completes the program, they will have a professional level.
  • LEA-Specific: The educator has not completed an educator preparation and is not currently enrolled in one.


The following is a link to the Utah Educator Look-up Tool provided in accordance to R277-301: Educator Licensing:  and data on % by FTE and Qualifications of Utah educators, including those at WSS.


The following is a link to USBE’s Educator Licensing website page, where LEA provides an annual report of FTE% in each of the above categories.


For the 2022-2023 School Year, of the WSS total FTE (full-time equivalency) of licensed teachers of 6.69 FTE, 15% or .99 FTE of our teaching assignments are educators who hold LEA-Specific educator’s licenses or endorsements for specific teaching assignments.


That equates to two part-time teachers, both with Master’s degrees, and three single-course teaching assignments that require additional LEA-Specific endorsements added to other endorsements already on educator professional level licenses. https://schools.utah.gov/licensing/adminsupportscactus
