Teacher Support Specialist to Teacher Support and Coaching Bridge 

Current TSS Holders ONLY 

This is a job-embedded program. Candidates must practice skills with assigned coachees.   

In accordance with 505-3-.105 TEACHER SUPPORT AND COACHING (TSC) ENDORSEMENT clarification to become effective June 15, 2015, Current TSS Endorsed Educators who wish to convert to the TSC Endorsement will have the following options offered by MGRESA: 

Option 1: TSS to TSC Bridge Course (Click to register)

The course is an online six module course designed to be completed in eight weeks, which features a performance-based opportunity for conversion candidates to obtain the specific knowledge and skills not addressed in 505-3-.105 TSS Endorsement program. 

** TSS Holders who have taken either the MGRESA Teacher Leader or Coaching Endorsements have already satisfied the MGRESA Bridge Requirements. Email mgreaspl@mgresa.us to find out how to convert your TSS to TSC. 

Option 2: TSS Endorsement holders may convert to the TSC Endorsement by passing the state-approved Teacher Leader Assessment. Teachers who complete this option may be eligible for the 505-2-.07 LEAD PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE. 

Once completed the candidate will be awarded two endorsement fields: Teacher Support and Coaching Endorsement and Coaching Endorsement.  

This is a phase-in program with the intent of phasing out the TSS certification field. A timeline has not been provided by GAPSC for the phase out of the TSS field.
