Kansas Teacher Reciprocity Agreements

Kansas offers the ability for out-of-state teachers to earn a Kansas teaching certification without much difficulty. 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. For more information about the process and what exactly is required to earn a Kansas teaching certification through reciprocity, explore the Kansas Department of Education website or call 785-291-3678.
