No. You may decide to take one course at a time, two courses, or all of the courses within the same summer (recommended option). Currently, Ohio University only plans to teach these courses during the summers so if it will take you longer to complete the endorsement if you do not take all coursework in one summer. Courses run 7 weeks and are entirely online.
4th-5th Grade Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement Online
Program Code: ND8869
The Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement (4/5) will allow teachers who hold a current valid Early Childhood license to teach all core academic content areas in grades four and five. The addition of this endorsement to your license provides school districts with greater staffing flexibility, Early Childhood teachers with additional teaching options, and facilitates the mobility of teachers into Ohio from other states.
