GCSA GaTAPP FY2014-2015 Cohort Inquiry Survey to Determine Eligibility
1. GCSA GaTAPP Program Registration 2014-2015
Thank you for inquiring about the Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) offered through The Georgia Charter Schools Association. The GaTAPP program is a two-year training program to prepare and certify highly effective teachers. Those teachers demonstrating exemplary teaching skills may finish in year-one either by May 1, 2014 or August 1, 2014, but a formal request will need to be made by the teacher and approved by GCSA. All others will engage in the program from August 2014-May 2016.
By completing this survey, you agree to pay the $100 Deposit for GCSA to provide a LiveText account, which is an online system to provide the documents needed to determine eligibility, as well as review entry eligibility. When initial inquiries are processed in late July, 2014 a Survey will be sent to enter valid payment information for Program Entry to determine eligibility and Program Fees if admitted (Program Fees can be paid in 10 installments from Sept., 2014-Jun. 2015. The total program cost is $4000.
There will be three monthly face-to-face mandatory Workshops that will be held on EITHER August 2 OR 9 AND Sept. 13 OR 20, AND October 18 OR 25 from 10:00am-3:00pm in GCSAs midtown office. *Please do not register if these dates will not work with your schedule. Throughout the program you will be required to select a specified number of Workshops held on a Saturday of your choice. Again, these are mandatory for completion so please put on your calendar. The additional face-to-face Workshop dates are tentatively scheduled for Nov. 15, Dec. 6, Jan. 17, Feb. 21, Mar. 21, and Apr.18, 2015.
The program listed below are facilitated by GCSA staff. Course descriptions, training formats, course completion requirements, and costs can be found in the Professional Development Course catalog found on the GCSA website at www.gacharters.org (Services tab - CharterUniversity).
*Completing this inquiry for the GaTAPP program DOES NOT confirm your enrollment in the program. This will happen via a formal review process and upon completion of the application packet and transcript review to determine minimum eligibility. No fees will be charged EXCEPT the DEPOSIT until you are formally admitted into the program. The DEPOSIT is applied upon completion of this survey and provides your LiveText account needed to review documentation and enroll, as well as process all required paperwork.
Payment for the program is due prior to participation in the program. If you wish to pay in installments, please contact the GaTAPP Program Director at email@example.com.
Thank you again for your interest.
