As for being licensed in Kansas with a current certificate from NY. I have
no idea! I would take the advice to check the KSDE site.
http://www.ksde.gov. I know a teacher who moved here from Ohio, Cinncinati
area, and is having to continue her education with a master's in special
ed. in order to teach in the position in which she was hired. If I
understand correctly what is acceptable in Ohio isn't supported by Kansas.
So it is best to check into the licensing requirements.
