Temporary Teacher Certificate
The State Board for Educator Certification approved the creation of the Temporary Teacher Certificate (TTC) at its April 2, 2004, meeting. The TTC provides an additional certification route for persons who hold a bachelor's degree or higher to enter the teaching profession.
Persons requesting a TTC must be employed by an approved Texas school district(s) for the two-year validity period of the certificate. The school district(s) will assume the responsibility of training the individual for the validity period of the certificate.
The information provided here will assist candidates wishing to apply for the Temporary Teacher Certificate and school districts wishing to hire candidates under this new route to certification.
There are not any school districts participating in the Temporary Teacher Certification (TTC) program at this time. Instead of applying for the TTC, please contact an approved educator preparation program for certification information.
