Call for Applications to the AACC/AACPS MAAPP-RTC Program

The AACC/AACPS Maryland Approved Alternative Preparation Program – Resident Teacher Certification program for Secondary (Middle & High School) Critical Shortage Content Areas is accepting applications from our current Provisional/Conditional teachers. Two deadlines have been established to provide opportunities to complete the internship activity during the 2018-19 school year. 

The first deadline is Friday, January 11, 2019, for applicants who meet requirements and have already taken Praxis Core & Praxis 2 Content assessments. This group of conditional teachers should also enroll in AACC EDU 261 & EDU 262 being offered during the Winter Semester. The internship for this group will be January to March 2019.

The second deadline is March 1, 2019 for conditional teacher applicants who need time to register and take both the Praxis Core and the Praxis 2 Content assessments. This group of conditional teachers should also enroll in AACC EDU 261 & EDU 262 as soon as possible to be eligible to complete their internships from March to June.

Note: In both cases the SAT, GRE or ACT score can be used in place of the Praxis Core if it meets the MSDE required score demonstrating proficiency in basic skills (reading, writing and math.)

Conditional teachers may also apply after March 1, 2019 for consideration as RTC program participants during the 2019-20 school year.

If you have questions or need an application, please contact Deborah Montgomery, AACC/AACPS MAAPP/RTC Program Manager at DMontgomery@aaps.org. The AACC/AACPS program does not serve our conditional special educators. Special Education conditional teachers interested in an RTC program may contact Maureen Gerrity at MGerrity@aacps.org for more information.
