GCSA is NOW ACCEPTING applications for the fall 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.

Registration Date: Sept. 23, 2022
Cohort Start Date: Oct. 3, 2022
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.
