GCSA is NOW ACCEPTING applications for the winter/spring cohort of GaTAPP, our alternative teacher certification program. Although charter schools are able to waive teacher certification, it’s critical to make sure all teachers are on a path to certification. This not only improves teacher quality but also increases the funding your school receives through the state formula.

Cohort Start Date: March 6, 2023
What is GaTAPP?
GaTAPP is an alternate certification pathway for individuals who have a current teaching job and hold a bachelor’s degree or higher in fields of study other than education. GaTAPP is a one to three-year performance-based, job-embedded teacher preparation program for teacher candidates to earn a clear renewable teaching certificate via a blended model of professional learning and pedagogy seminars, to include the demonstration of proficient classroom performance, diverse field experiences, and support from a field supervisor, job-alike mentor, and school administrator.
