Teacher Licensing


Teacher licensing in Utah ensures your child's teacher is highly qualified to be teaching your child. Utah State Board of Education allows teacher candidates to become licensed via two ways--University-based program, or an Alternate Pathway to Professional Licensure (APPEL). Candidates can also be licensed via a Local-Specific License that is voted on in a open and public meeting and then approved by the Utah State Board of Education. DaVinci Academy recognizes all three ways for teacher candidates to be licensed to teach at DaVinci Academy.  Once a teacher is licensed, they go from Associate License to a Professional License. Below are the percentages of DaVinci Teachers by each type of teaching license.
