K-12 Library Endorsement
We work in conjunction with Seattle Pacific University to offer the school library media endorsement. We offer five classes here. There are also two classes to take from SPU and then you need to take the WestE exam. SPU is the institution conferring the endorsement. Additional information is available at the SPU web site: www.spu.edu/cpe.
