The River Parishes Community College in Sorrento is set to offer an Associate of Science in Teacher Education Degree if the program meets approval by the State Board of Regents, according to a press release from the RPCC.

The program has already met the approval of the Board of Supervisors of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System. The degree curriculum will be part of the Louisiana TeachNext program, which allows students at Delgado or Nunez community colleges to complete the first two years of a four-year teaching degree while enrolled in two-year program.

The Associate of Science degree is designed specifically for students who are interested in teaching elementary-level students in grades 1-5.

The degree is fully transferable to four-year colleges of education in Louisiana.

In addition, students will complete two professional education courses with associated field experience and must pass two parts of the PRAXIS teacher examination.

Informational meetings will be held March 16 at noon at the RPCC in Room A-101.

Prospective students may also find more information on the web at www.LouisianaTeachNext.org.
