ITEC M.Ed. GA CertificationOVERVIEW GA CERTIFICATION COURSES FAQS KSU CATALOG
The Master's Degree satisfies requirements for an S-5 certification (service field) in Instructional Technology and increases a T-4 certification to a T-5. However, to qualify for the new S-certification and the certificate upgrade, graduates must pass the GACE assessment in Instructional Technology and add the new field to their GaPSC certificate.
*NOTE - Please check with the GaPSC to ensure you will receive an upgrade upon graduation. You should also check with your school/district to determine if you will receive a salary increase.
*NOTE - You do NOT need to be working in an Instructional Technology position to receive the upgrade! You can remain in the classroom. Please check with your district for any restrictions.
*NOTE - You must "pass" the GACE to add the new ITEC certification and upgrade your existing Georgia teaching certificate.
