List of Waivers: Certification Requirements

Title 20 Waivers

Certification Requirements 


This flexibility will allow the district to expand employment opportunities and practices in critical areas, such as Math, Science, Foreign Language, Special Education, and CTAE.

Additional Information

Georgia Teaching Certification will continue to be the standard for hiring teachers. Georgia has a new requirement that no longer allows for a Master’s degree exemption of the GACE Basic Skills Assessment. This has caused us to start the school year with over 10 more substitute teachers. We also would like the ability to hire professors from colleges and universities who train our teachers to teach here in the district. The existng certification requirements make this process difficult. The waiver will be used in special circumstances that justify its use.
