If you are an initially or professionally licensed Kansas teacher and have been hired in special education or in another subject area in which you do not meet requirements for a provisional license, your employer may request a Quality Performance Accreditation (QPA) waiver. Information concerning a QPA waiver is available on the KSDE web site at
Again, you must hold an initial or professional Kansas license and you are ineligible for a QPA waiver if you hold a one-year nonrenewable, restricted, or substitute license.
Areas not eligible for a waiver include
A waiver for Early Childhood Unified will be granted only if an early-late childhood (K-6) or elementary (K-9) license is held. A waiver for Library Media or Reading Specialist will be granted only if a professional license is held. If you meet the following criteria
and would like PSU to provide the required "Plan of Study," please contact PSU Teacher Licensing.
