Metro RESA Conversion from ECE Mathematics Endorsement to K-5 Mathematics Endorsement Thursday, September 30, 2010 Denise Huddlestun Metro RESA Math Coordinator
Congratulations -- on having earned the Early Childhood Mathematics Endorsement
Objectives Provide information about the conversion from the Early Childhood Mathematics Endorsement to the K-5 Mathematics Endorsement Answer questions of previous completers about the conversion
ECE Mathematics Endorsement The Early Childhood Mathematics Endorsement will remain on your certificate. As a result of HB 280, the mathematics endorsement is now the K-5 Mathematics Endorsement requiring a pedagogy specific course and Authentic Residency.
HB 280 (b)(1)(A) On and after July 1, 2010, a kindergarten or elementary school teacher in a local school system who receives an endorsement in mathematics, science, or both from the Professional Standards Commission shall receive a stipend of $1,000.00 per endorsement for each year each such endorsement is in effect, up to a maximum of five years. http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/hb280.htm
HB 280 (B) After five years, such teacher may continue to receive such stipend if he or she meets or exceeds student achievement criteria established by the Office of Student Achievement. http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/hb280.htm
HB 280 (C) Upon expiration of five years, or any year thereafter that such a teacher does not meet or exceed student achievement as required by subparagraph (B) of this paragraph, such teacher shall cease to receive the stipend. (D) This paragraph shall be subject to appropriations by the General Assembly. http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/hb280.htm
HB 280 (2)(A) In order to qualify for the stipend pursuant to paragraph (1) of this subsection, math and science endorsements shall: (i) Be based on post-baccalaureate nondegree programs, independent of an initial preparation program in early childhood education; http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/hb280.htm
HB 280 (ii) Consist of a minimum of three courses, of which two courses shall be focused on the advancement of content knowledge and one course, or any additional course, shall be focused on content-specific pedagogy and proven strategies for teaching math or science to children in kindergarten through fifth grade; and (iii) Include an authentic residency experience with a focus on application of knowledge and skills. http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/hb280.htm
