WHAT IS ARCTELL?

The Alternate Route to Certification for Teachers of English Language Learners (ARCTELL) is an innovative program developed for the Connecticut State Department of Education, approved by the Department of Higher Education, and administered by Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES) to attract talented, successful Connecticut teachers to new teaching careers as TESOL or Bilingual teachers.

Teachers who successfully complete the program of instruction, as well as additional CT State Department of Education requirements, will receive a Certificate of Completion and a cross-endorsement in certification area #111, Teaching English to Speaker of Other Languages PK-12, and/or may be eligible to pursue a Bilingual cross-endorsement in their certification area.
