This initial “permit” to teach in the State of Michigan at either the elementary or secondary level is “provisional” because it remains valid for only six years from the date of issuance. At the end of this time span, a teacher may either seek a three year renewal of the certificate or apply for the Provisional Education Certificate. First Three Year Renewal When the initial Michigan Provisional Certificate expires at the end of the six year time span, a “First Renewal” is available if a teacher has completed ten (10) semester hours of an 18-hour “ Planned Program” of coursework in a state approved teacher education institution such as Saginaw Valley State University. The program is planned with the College of Education Certification Officer, and application for the renewal to the Michigan Department of Education is made through the Certification Office. Second Three Year Renewal A second three year renewal is available to teachers who complete the 18-hour planned program but lack the three years of teaching experience required for the Professional Education Certificate. Teachers in need of a second renewal should contact the College of Education Certification Office. The Professional Education Certificate Upon completion of the 18-hour “Planned Program” and three full years of teaching or 450 days of part-time teaching, a teacher may apply for a Professional Education Certificate. The Professional Education Certificate must be renewed with an application to the Michigan Department of Education after having completed six (6) semester hours of coursework every five years at a state approved teacher education college or university or eighteen (18) SB-CEU’s (State Board Approved Continuing Education Units). The Planned Program The 18-hour “Planned Program” of study which is required for a continued teacher certification must be planned with a college or university Certification Officer. Individualized program designs in various subject areas, certificate endorsements, and graduate programs are available at Saginaw Valley State University through the College 31 of Education. Selection of an appropriate program for each teacher is based upon individual career goals, occupational need, and level of certification. Additional minors may be added to elementary or secondary certificates for middle school and high school subject areas. The College of Education also offers programs to prepare teachers for certification specialization endorsements in Early Childhood Education, Special Education, Middle School Teaching, and Reading. Coursework in these areas maybe applied to a Master of Arts in Teaching Degree in each of the designated specialties. Additional minors in certain endorsement areas may require the successful completion of corresponding Michigan Tests of Teachers Certification (MTTC). For further information on planning a program of study for continued certification, teachers are encouraged to contact the College of Education Certification Officer. Administration Endorsements The State of Michigan no longer requires school administrators to acquire certification through approved coursework at teacher/administrator preparatory colleges and universities. However, most Michigan school districts still require that administrators hold administrator endorsements. Saginaw Valley State University offers a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership with specialization in Elementary or Secondary Principalship, Central Office Administration, and Supertintendency. A Chief of School Business Official Endorsement for non-te aching positions is also available. Further information on these programs can be obtained from the Certification Officer or a faculty advisor in the Education Leadership Department of the College of Education. 32 Saginaw Valley State University Accelerated Certification Program Defining the Program 2004-2005 Accelerated Certification Education (ACE) is a unique program that allows individuals who have a Bachelors degree or better to acquire their teaching certificate in a one year period. This is accomplished through an intensive program that blends instructional methods classes, student teaching and substitute teaching experiences in a nine month period from August to the end of the SVSU winter term in April. To be successful, it takes a team effort on the part of the Associate Teacher, the Cooperating Mentor Teacher and our SVSU Instructors. Persons enrolled in the secondary ACE program will spend the first two weeks in August in course work focusing on Classroom Climate and substitute skills. The first10 weeks of school, Secondary ACE students will alternate between substitute teaching on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and observing/helping in the Cooperating Teacher’s classroom on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The next 20 weeks will be focused on associate teaching. Associate teachers will be scheduled with their Cooperating Teacher five (5) days a week. During these 20 weeks, there should be a gradual transition of teaching responsibilities from the Cooperating Teacher to the Associate Teacher. All Elementary ACE students take a Children’s Literature course in August that also focuses on the development of lesson plans. Beginning in the fall, Elementary ACE Students will be in their assigned classroom four days a week, Tuesday through Friday. On Mondays, Elementary ACE students report to the SVSU Macomb Regional Education Center to take their methods courses. During the first three weeks of the fall semester, students will primarily observe and assist the Cooperating Teacher in the classroom, getting acquainted with the students and curriculum. Beginning the 4th week, Elementary ACE students will than begin substitute teaching in other classrooms on an A week / B week schedule, or as needed by the district. 33 SAGINAW VALLEY STATE UNIVERISTY MACOMB REGIONAL EDUCATION CENTER ADVISORS Advisors are available on a scheduled basis at the Macomb Regional Education Center.
