Required Literacy Training

NEW - TLSA now provides two pathways for demonstrating knowledge of foundational literacy instruction: completing a foundational literacy skills course or passing a foundational literacy instruction assessment.  The Tennessee Early Literacy Assessment (TELA) was fully approved by the State Board of Education (SBE) during the June 2023 special-called board meeting. Educators may now take and pass the TELA as one option to meet TLSA licensure requirements.
