Career and Technical Education - ATS

In 2004, the Ohio Department of Education recommended amending Chapter 3301-24-08 of the Teacher Education and Licensure Standards, Professional or Associate License Renewal. This recommendation resulted in a change regarding Route B career-technical licenses. This rule states that the second renewal of the professional career-technical license obtained pursuant to the provisions in paragraph (D) (7) of Rule 3301-24-05 of the Administrative Code shall require completion of a degree applicable to the career field, classroom teaching, or area of licensure. The second renewal of a Route B career-technical license, therefore, requires that the applicant hold at least an Associate Degree. This rule applies to all first Route B Licensures issued after December 30, 2004.

To help you meet this requirement, Clark State Community College has developed an Associate of Technical Studies (ATS) degree specializing in career-technical education.
This ATS degree was designed specifically for Career and Technical educators who currently have a Route B career-technical license, so completing the program is easy!
