Relay Graduate School of Education Denver
Key Points for Academic Year 2020-2021
- Relay Denver hosts a mandatory Summer I Session, during which you will earn approximately ¼ of your credits toward a Colorado Initial Teacher’s License.
- The Relay Denver Summer I Session is scheduled for July 13-17, 2020 from 8:00AM to 4:00PM each day, with evening work. We continue to monitor local and state guidance regarding in-person gatherings and will update this page when we have determined whether classes this summer will be in-person or online.
- Relay Denver also hosts a mandatory Summer II Session, which is a two-week, full-time obligation in late June, 2021.
Relay Denver offers applicants two options to demonstrate content knowledge for admission:
- 1) Meet Colorado State Board of Education content knowledge options, or
- 2) Provide verification of an upcoming Praxis II exam.
- In response to COVID-19, applicants who would have chosen option 2 (provide verification of an upcoming Praxis II exam) will have this option waived and will not be required to provide this verification. However, we strongly recommend applicants register for a Praxis II exam in late May or early June, (see below).
