The Deming Public Schools and Eastern New Mexico University will continue to partner this school year to offer a TESOL endorsement program. The program is a two-year, four course, twelve hour graduate program that may be applied toward the district’s requirement of BA+45 and/or MA by the eighth teaching contract. All courses qualify for the district reimbursement program. A TESOL endorsement is increasingly becoming important as districts and schools work toward meeting state and federal requirements of the ELL population. This orientation meeting will be held to review the program, answer questions and begin the process of registration.
