More Info

The OTS endorsement is for those wishing to “plan, deliver, and evaluate online instruction” in 100% onilne K 12 environments. The endoresement for Online Teaching Specialist is for Vermont certified K 12 educators, and it applies only to the content area for which they are already certified. For specific state restrictions and requirements, see the Online Teaching Specialist Standards and Teacher Review Worksheet from the State AOE.

The OTS endorsement requires 18 credits. 9 of these credits come from your existing credit hours required for certification in your content area. The remaining 9 credits need to come from graduate level course work focusing on skills and training related to teaching students from a distance who are enrolled in online course work (as specified in AOE’s Teacher Review Worksheet). This endorsement also requires 60 hours of online practicum work.

If you already have experience with online teaching and are seeking endorsement, until 2015 the state has a system for grandfathering those who are, or have, taught online. For specific information and instruction, see AOE’s Experienced Online Teacher Worksheet .
