The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will be proposing to eliminate the Instructional Technology Specialist teacher license currently issued under 603 CMR 7.00. Many of our MBEA members hold this license because instructional technology ties in so well with business education. Please help petition this change by sending a letter to Commissioner Mitchell Chester. A sample letter has been linked below for your convenience. It was crafted by our friends at MassCUE and is also supported by our friends at the Massachusetts Educational Technology Administrators Association (METAA).
