Transition Policy

TEACHERS: Are you taking over a program with CASE curriculum?

ADMINISTRATORS: Did your CASE certified teacher leave your program?

The Transition Policy can help bridge the gap between changes to your CASE program. 

CASE certification is the intellectual property of the teacher who completes the professional development. CASE certification stays with a teacher throughout their career regardless of their place of employment. 

When a CASE certified teacher leaves a school that is utilizing CASE curriculum, the incoming teacher can apply for a ONE instructional year probationary period to use the curriculum without being certified, with the expectation that the incoming teacher commit to training in the following summer. 

A school district may continue to use CASE curriculum for the courses in which the former teacher was certified for a period of ONE instructional year with the following requirements:

  • Pre-pay $830 certification fee for the incoming teacher. This fee will be reduced from the final cost of training the following summer.

  • Provide a letter from the administration with a commitment to send the incoming teacher to a CASE Institute for training the next summer. 
  • Successful completion of CASE Foundations training online (approximately 1 hour) of the non-certified teacher.
Upon receipt of the items above, the requested course will be accessible to the transitioning teacher until June 30. Access will not be granted until payment is received. Payment via credit card is preferred for immediate access. 
After the probationary period expires on June 30, access to the materials will expire. The school district will be informed that it is in violation of copyright laws if they continue to use all or parts of the materials in question without appropriate teacher certification. By sending the non-certified teacher to the summer training, they will gain permanent access to the curriculum.

If you fit the criteria, apply for Probationary Access.
