Secondary Science Endorsements

New Science Endorsement Updates

  • On July 1, 2021 the new Secondary Science Endorsement system that was Introduced to district science leaders several times last year came into effect. When you or your school administration log into CACTUS to check on educator licensure status you will notice Secondary Science Endorsement names have changed. Waiting for it to be closer to the start of school year before we sent emails, we hope to send out emails to Science Teachers, Principals, and HR Departments with details and resources to help them make sense of the changes which I hope will go out to them this week. If you have questions, please refer to a document we introduced at a state science leadership meeting last Spring called Utah Secondary Science Endorsement Format Changes. This is a living document that describes why the changes occurred and the effects of the changes. If you have questions that aren’t clearly described in the email, please let me know so I can add them to the Frequently Asked Questions section of the document.
