*Per the State of Michigan: "(a) specific endorsement is not needed to teach these classes.  With the addition of the seventh standard to the Entry-Level Standards for Michigan Teachers, all new teachers are entering classrooms with technology knowledge and skills. The COATT and M-COATT programs are further strengthening the technology skills of teachers. School districts are free to assign any faculty to these classes that provide evidence of professional development related to specific technology classes, as long as they are certified to teach at the grade levels the classes are offered. A teacher with an elementary certificate can teach these introductory computer classes in grades K-8."

**Per the State of Michigan (see p. 15), "school districts will be free to assign any teachers to these courses who provides evidence of professional development and holds a certificate for the grade level at which these courses are offered."
