The International Reading Association's Certificate of Distinction program honors outstanding reading preparation of teachers. Read the complete list Certificate of Distinction award recipients.

The Certificate of Distinction is for any graduate or undergraduate program that prepares individuals for initial licensure/certification as an elementary or secondary classroom teacher.

"Program" may refer to several different types of entities:

  • an entire elementary and/or secondary initial preparation program
  • a subprogram within an elementary or secondary preparation program
  • other clearly defined university entities to which the word "program" applies

In each case, IRA reviews the reading components and determines if the program is providing distinguished preparation in reading.
