Kansas Teacher Reciprocity Agreements

You will need to be able to provide proof (transcripts) of the completion of an approved teacher preparation program, a current state-issued teaching certification, a bachelor's degree, successful completion of competency examinations, fingerprint background check, and satisfy "recency" stipulations.
