STEM integration

What is the STEM professional development requirement for certificate renewal?  Educators submitting renewal applications for residency, professional, initial, continuing teacher and CTE teacher certificates with STEM-related endorsements must document completion of at least 15 clock hours, the equivalent in credit, or at least one goal from an annual professional growth plan (PGP), with an emphasis on STEM integration.

 

STEM Integration

Authentic combination of at least two STEM components (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Whether or not a teacher needs to meet this requirement depends on their certificate’s endorsements, not on their job assignment. Teachers with one or more of the following endorsements must meet this requirement:

  • Agriculture Education
  • Business and Marketing Education
  • Computer Science
  • CTE (All Areas)
  • Designated Sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth & Space Science
