The Governor recently signed a new law that eliminates the requirement for teachers seeking initial licensure or renewal of a license to demonstrate proficiency in the use of educational technology for instruction. Therefore, the Virginia Department of Education has recently clarified the TSIP requirements for all licensed personnel in Virginia. The actual Technology Standards certainly still exist; however, they are not required for licensure. You are welcome to explore the Virginia Society for Technology in Education’s Standards as well.
We believe that our classrooms are amazing places to grow and learn. We also believe that technology plays an integral role in Albemarle County Public Schools as our division continues moving forward with its mission to establish a community of learners and learning through relationships, rigor and relevance, one student at a time.
If you have a question or need that relates to integrating technology in your classroom, please reach out to the friendly Learning Technology Integrator (LTI) assigned to your school.
