Special Education LBSI Endorsement
(for Practicing Teachers)

The Special Education LBSI Endorsement program is designed with the practicing teacher in mind.  Those with a valid Illinois teaching license are eligible to participate in this program, which will result in adding an LBSI Endorsement for the age and grade levels for which they are already licensed.  For example, a teacher who is currently endorsed for grades 6-12 would earn an LBSI Endorsement for that same grade range, whereas a teacher with a license endorsed for grades K-12 would have an LBSI Endorsement valid for K-12.

Why add an LBSI Endorsement at Eureka College?
