Supplementary/Subject Matter – What are they? Supplementary Authorizations (SA) and Subject Matter Authorizations (SMA) are authorizations that can be added to a basic credential. SA/SMA’s allow an educator to teach in a subject area other than the subject area of the basic credential earned. SA/SMA’s can only be earned on the basis of course work. In general, SMA’s are No Child Left Behind Compliant (NCLB), SA’s are not. Education/methodology courses cannot be counted.
Supplementary/Subject matter—What are they? If you have at least 12 units of coursework in another subject, you may check the supplementary/subject matter authorization box on your credential request form. Your analyst will review your transcripts to see if you could qualify for any additional authorization (teaching middle school). For those who are interested, we will go over the supplementary and subject matter authorizations in more detail at the end of the meeting. Please sign up if you are interested to attend the SMA/Supplementary workshop
