Georgia Educators - The Instructional Technology Master's Degree satisfies requirements for an S-5 certification (service field) in Instructional Technology and increases a T-4 certification to a T-5. However, to qualify for the new S-certification and the certificate upgrade, you must pass the GACE assessment in Instructional Technology and add the new field to your existing GaPSC teaching certificate.

  • This program will NOT lead to initial GaPSC teacher certification.
  • Please check with the GaPSC to ensure you will receive an upgrade upon graduation. You should also check with your school/district to determine if you will receive a salary increase.
  • You do NOT need to be working in an Instructional Technology position to receive the upgrade, and you can remain teaching in the classroom. Please check with your district for any restrictions.
  • You must "pass" the GACE to add the new ITEC certification and upgrade your existing Georgia teaching certificate.
