Professional Standards Commission (PSC) computer science endorsement update:
The ISEE code manual shows dual credit CS classes will count for Math/Science credits, but it doesn’t require the new CS Endorsement at this time. The Endorsement has been approved, however the PSC will make it a requirement at some time in the future.
Currently, BSU’s Masters of STEM education (with CS Emphasis) and Graduate Certificate in Teacher Endorsement are approved programs for the endorsement. The PSC plans to wait until enough teachers have graduated to require endorsement. BSU’s first teachers will graduate this coming year, at which time we will talk to IDOE to see how they want to roll out the endorsement requirement.
