Advanced Credit Program August 2016 Update

Advanced Technical Credit (ATC) teacher approvals for 2017-2018 will be delayed until January 2017. In January, the ATC Program trainings will reflect upcoming changes to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and include new courses for the 2017-18 academic year.

From September 2016 through January 2017, the ATC Program will provide teachers with pre-screening results upon submission of their Teacher Application and completion of Part I Training. Access to Part II Trainings for courses in the current ATC Course Crosswalk will resume in January 2017. Beginning in April 2017, teachers will be able to access Part II Trainings for new courses added for the 2017–18 academic year. The ATC Program will accept submission of official transcripts for processing upon reinstatement of ATC approvals in January 2017.

ATC approval is contingent upon submission of the Teacher Application, completion of Part I and II Trainings, and receipt of an official transcript. Teachers whose approvals expired July 31, 2015 or July 31, 2016 and have not had the opportunity to renew their credentials will be given a grace period until July 31, 2017 to renew their credentials.
