Transition from LaTAAP to Compass

*As of May 2010, the Louisiana Teacher Assistance and Assessment Program (LaTAAP) was removed from LA Statute.

  • Any teacher who ever participated in LaTAAP and successfully completed it and is found as a “completer” in the LaTAAP database, is eligible for a higher-level certificate if he/she also has completed three (3) years of teaching in the area of certification. 
  • Teachers who were granted out-of-state LaTAAP exclusion by May 2010 can be found in the LaTAAP database. These teachers are eligible for a higher-level certificate if he/she also has completed three (3) years of teaching in the area of certification.  No other out-of-state applicants will be granted LaTAAP exclusion after May 2010. 
  • If an individual completed three years of formal, successful local evaluations for the following three school years: 2009-2010, 2010-2011, and 2011-2012, this teacher can move to a higher-level certificate if he/she also has completed three years of teaching in the area of certification.    The teacher must have been employed during the 2009-2010 school year.
  • If a teacher began teaching during the 2010-2011 school year, he/she falls under Compass requirements for issuance of a higher-level certificate.  ACT 54 requires three (3) years of effective Compass evaluation ratings beginning with the 2012-2013 school year for issuance of a higher-level certificate.  Teachers who fall into this category may be granted a three-year extension of their Level 1 certificate to allow additional time for them to earn three (3) effective Compass evaluation ratings.
