Entry Certification Requirements for Visiting Teachers and School Social Workers in Fifty States as of April, 1965.
Gloss, Garvin G.
Since certification patterns for school psychologists, visiting teachers, and school social workers are presently being evaluated in Ohio, it was felt that the practices of other states should be studied. On April 7, 1965, a questionnaire was distributed to all State Superintendents of Public Instruction. A follow-up questionnaire was sent on May 20, 1965, to those few states not initially responding. All states outside Ohio replied. The questionnaire asked each state to check if it certificated school psychologists, visiting teachers, or social workers. In addition, each was to check whether the specialist was required to be eligible for or should hold a teaching certificate. Some 40 states also enclosed copies of their certification requirements with their reply. The Ohio Division of Teacher Education and Certification had on file the certification standards for the remaining states. These were analyzed in conjunction with the questionnaire replies in order to obtain the necessary data. A similar study of entry certification requirements for school psychologists was distributed to the states earlier by the Ohio Division of Special Education. The following tables briefly summarize the certification requirements for visiting teachers and school social workers. (Author)
