With a Subject Matter Authorization (SMA) you can teach through the ninth grade in specific subject areas. In many cases, the coursework for your Depth of Study can be applied to the SMA. ICP students interested in teaching middle level are invited to attend a Subject Matter Authorization Workshop. Students can download the SMA worksheet you are interested in and bring it to the workshop. Students should also bring their ICP Education Plan worksheet, transcripts, and Depth of Study worksheet to the workshop.
