A new version of PI 34, the administrative rule that governs educator preparation and licensing, went into effect August 1, 2018. This new version of PI 34 made some important changes to the License Based on Content Test Pathway for educators by removing some license options and expanding others.

The most noticeable changes include:

1. Broad field licenses can no longer be added by content test.
