Hi..... I am beyond frustrated and overly emotional right now. Background: MA: C&I License: K-12 Sped., Reading Endorsement eligible (not added to license; see below). Issue: Applying for license I am in Ohio and recently advanced my teaching license from the Resident Educator program to a Professional License. I completed the program for TVI (Teacher of Visually Impaired) and went to add that endorsement to my license. In the past, I completed the coursework and passed the two subtests for my reading endorsement (OAE 38 and 39). I did not add it to my license as I thought it was added when I applied for my K-12 Sped. License-- honest mistake. As I went to apply for my VI endorsement, the college denied it because, "I did not take the Foundations of Reading OAE" and the two reading subtests I took for my endorsement do not count. I went to apply for my VI license last year but was denied and never received an answer as to why. I reapplied once I was done with the state's resident educator license program and applied for my professional license. My advisors at the college NEVER mentioned I needed to take this exam because I took the courses and the tests for my reading endorsement and they knew that beforehand because they had all my documentation. I reached out to my advisor at the program but right now just highly irritated. Any suggestions/ideas as to how I should proceed? I called the state and am currently waiting for a callback from a Licensure Specialist as to the difference between the two tests and why I need to take a foundations tests when I passed the other two. Why would I have to take ANOTHER foundations tests when I took the courses and passed it for the other test. I am just very upset and any guidance/suggestions would be appreciated.
