From June 6, 2023 - Sept. 30, 2023, or until funds run out, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will pay fees on educator certification tests (including the Paraprofessional Exam). Individuals registering for these assessments will automatically have the cost of assessments applied during the registration process. No special offer code or money will be required of the registrant. Individuals have up to one year from the date of registration to take the certification test.
