CAPS (Certification/Curriculum Assignment Policies System) is a web-based, “In-Field Assignments” resource created by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. This resource aligns courses from the Georgia state-approved curriculum with the Georgia certificate(s) which are in-field to teach that course. The system allows a user to find a course and its appropriate certificates using four different search criteria: by choosing a subject area, entering a course number, entering an exact title or partial title, and/or choosing a grade level. Please note that special education fields may be present for many courses, however; it is listed with the assumption the course will be taught in a special education setting. Special education educators are not in-field while teaching regular education courses.

Courses listed in CAPS are described in SBOE Rule 160-4-2-.20 State-Funded List of K-8 Subjects and 9-12 Courses.
