K-5 Science Endorsement

  • The K-5 Science Endorsement at Metro RESA is a GaPSC approved preparation program that provides approved candidates with the coursework and related field experience required to add the K-5 Science Endorsement to a current standard Georgia Professional Certificate.  Each of the courses includes middle school content to provide teachers with a deeper understanding of science content vertically beyond the elementary grade band in which they teach.  Courses also engage teachers in hands-on three-dimensional learning to model and deepen their understanding of what it means to be proficient in science as outlined in A Framework for K-12 Science Education

    Upon successful completion of the endorsement, candidates may be eligible for a $1,000 per year stipend, for up to 5 years, based on funding approval by the Georgia General Assembly.
    For additional stipend details, review pages 2 and 3 of the GaDOE Math and Science Teachers Supplement FAQ document.
