I'm coming from out-of-town, where should I stay?
If you need a hotel during your stay in Charlotte, we have secured a discounted rate of $104/night at Courtyard Charlotte Airport/Billy Graham Parkway. Book your group rate for CMS Job Fair by visiting http://bit.ly/CMShotel - the hotel does have shuttle service to/from the airport but does not provide transportation to the event. You may consider meeting others in the lobby to carpool and using Uber, Lyft, or Taxi service. Taxi service should run around $25 each way. We do not facilitate transportation or make recomendations for any hotel or car service.
What is Lateral Entry?
Lateral Entry is an alternative pathway to licensure. It is not for candidates who have completed an approved education program and student-teaching. It is for candidates who have degrees in areas other than education. If you are a lateral entry candidate, you are not guaranteed entry into the event. We must do a review of your official transcripts to determine eligibility.
I am a lateral entry candidate. Are their any special instructions? How do I know if I qualify?
If you are a Lateral Entry/Alternative Licensure candidate (your degree is not in a Teacher Education Program) you must upload all of your official degree dated transcript(s) ordered from the university to your application in the “Attachments” section for evaluation. If you have taken the Praxis II or Pearson exams attach those to your application.
CMS will host a pre-screening event for lateral entry candidates of Friday, April 28 at Herbert Spaugh Administrative Building (1901 Herbert Spaugh Lane, Charlotte, NC) from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. You must bring your original transcripts with you to this event. A review of your transcript(s) will be done to determine your preliminary eligibility for lateral entry. If it is determined that you are not eligible, unfortunately you will not receive a ticket to enter the fair. Note: transcripts will not be viewed on mobile devices.
If you are unable to attend the pre-screening event on Friday, we will screen additional transcrips the day of the event on a first-come basis. Please be aware that this line will be long and move slowly the day of the event, limiting your time inside the fair. We highly recommend that you get pre-screened on Friday.
