BMIT - DID YOU KNOW?

  1. Did you know that in order to teach a course you have never taught before, you do NOT need to complete any additional paperwork?  If you have a marketing education certificate, you can teach any approved marketing course. If you have a business education certificate, you can teach any approved business course, except SBE and Computer Science. SBE and Computer Science I and II have additional requirements. APPROVED COURSES: https://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/bmit-career-cluster.pdf

The following listserv is intended to facilitate the communication and exchange of ideas among teachers to improve and expand upon business, marketing, and information technology education and related services for students in Missouri.

BMIT LISTSERV

This listserv was created for all business, marketing, and CCE teachers in the state of Missouri. We all need to work together to best serve our students, so share lesson plans, online resources, curriculum enrichments, anything that will help create a meaningful, educational experience for our students.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!!

We are down to one listserv.  

When sending an email on this listserv, PLEASE make sure to type the following in the subject line:

(PROGRAM NAME) (COURSE NAME)

Example 1: Business, Accounting I,
Example 2: Marketing, Advertising, 
Example 3: All Programs (use this if what you are sharing/asking applies to all program areas)

By using this information in the subject line, it will help teachers more easily filter out the messages that may not apply to them.

All subscribers will be able to post to this listserv without regard of MBEA or MCEA membership. BMIT staff will post to this listserv as well.

STACKABLE CREDENTIAL - Beginning in school year 2020-2021, students earning two stackable credentials in a program area will have the same effect on a district's APR as earning an IRC. Our current working definition of a stackable credential is a series of aligned, recognized, preferred, and/or required credentials (stackable) within an industry or sector that support an individual’s ability to obtain related, career employment.
