“Teachers who are not fully certified in the teaching discipline by the State Board for Educator Certification (i.e. state teaching certification) will be asked to provide the ATC Office with proof that they meet the above requirements. For proof of their degree, they must have official transcripts sent directly to the ATC Office from the college or university. For proof of work experience, they will be asked to submit full work history information to the ATC Office.”
How do I know if I am fully certified by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC)?
1) Go to the SBEC Certification Search on the SBEC website.
2) Follow the instructions given on the page to view your SBEC certificate.
3) If you are fully SBEC certified, you will have a certificate that is listed as either “Standard” or “Provisional.” Your certification must be in the teaching discipline (i.e. a “Physical Education” SBEC certification will not cover agriculture courses). SBEC certifications that have expired are not valid.
4) The ATC Approval Office does not consider you fully SBEC certified if: 1) you have no certification at all; 2) your certification is listed as “Emergency Permit” or “Probationary;” 3) your certification is not in the teaching discipline; or 4) your certification is expired.
What do I do if the ATC Office does not consider me as fully SBEC certified?
You can still be approved to teach courses for Advanced Technical Credit, but you will be asked to submit official transcripts and/or full work history information to the ATC Approval Office to show you meet the requirements. When we evaluate your ATC Application and find that you are not SBEC certified in the teaching discipline we will ask you to submit the following:
If you meet Requirement 1, you must have your official transcript showing your degree sent to the ATC Approval Office directly from the college or university.
If you meet Requirement 2, you must have your official transcripts showing your degree sent to the ATC Approval Office directly from the college or university. You must also submit full work history information to the ATC Approval Office by filling out and sending in the ATC Employment Form.
