ATC Teacher Requirements
Non-degreed individuals will not be eligible for ATC approval.
Teachers must meet one of the two following requirements to be approved to teach a course for Advanced Technical Credit:
Requirement 1: The teacher must have a baccalaureate degree or higher with a major in the teaching discipline.
The teaching discipline is the subject area for the ATC course you wish to teach. For example, the teaching discipline for "Principles of Marketing" would be marketing; the teaching discipline for "Computer Applications" would be computers.
ATC Official Transcript Reminder
The ATC program must have an official transcript from every teacher seeking ATC approval beginning with the 2010-2011 school year. By definition, an official transcript is one that has been received directly from the issuing institution. It must bear the institution’s seal, an appropriate signature and a date.
Training sessions are underway and additional sessions have been scheduled. It is most important that the transcripts be received in a timely fashion as the ATC Approval office must process approximately 8,000 applications for the 2010-2011 school year. However, our office is only able to process approximately 10% of the applications that have been received and must send a transcript request to the other 90%. Of course this drastically increases the time required to process these applications.
The following guidelines will assist teachers with this task.
Official transcripts cannot be faxed or emailed. Copies from the school district’s HR department cannot be accepted.
Also, all teachers must complete a new Part I Online session. Even though a teacher’s approval list may show a valid Part I, it must be repeated since the session contains updated information regarding the TEKS rewrites, PEIMS, etc…
Transcripts should be mailed to:
Lone Star College
