Terminology Transitions

Below is a list of credentialing terms that are transitioning to new language. Transitions may be due to RSA/rule changes, business practice, or consolidation/clarification. We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documents, this Knowledge Base, EIS (Educator Information System) and general messaging. Any additional transitions moving forward will be posted here.
