ELL Endorsement

While the population of English language learners (ELL) steadily increases, districts in Washington struggle to meet their academic needs. Grays Harbor College is working to address this concern by offering an ELL endorsement to those who already hold a current Washington State teacher’s certificate.

This endorsement is for teachers who successfully complete the courses below. Upon completion, the teachers will be recommended for the endorsement to OSPI:

  • All the BAST program application requirements
  • 2.7 GPA in all required college-level coursework
  • BAST 345, ELA Methods
  • BAST 355, Reading Methods
  • BAST 370, Language and Culture
  • BAST 371, Advanced Language and Literacy
  • ECED& 180, Language and Literacy Development
