Beginning June 1, 2015, Health and Physical Education students can take either the Pearson Area Content test or the Praxis II content test.  Should you decide to take the Praxis II test, be aware that you must take and pass the test by August 31, 2015 to be valid for licensing.  After that date, you must take the Pearson Area Content test.
