Professional Certificate Renewal for Administrators

  • Completion of ten quarter credits (or semester equivalent) of college credit course work directly related to the current performance-based leadership standards from a accredited institution of higher education taken since the issuance of the professional certificate,
  • completion of 100 clock hours since the certificate was issued which relate to the career level benchmarks
  • completion of four PGPs developed annually since the certificate was issued. The PGPs must document the formalized learning opportunities and professional development activities that relate to the six standards and career level benchmarks (see link above). Please note that all six standards do not need to be addressed in each PGP, only the standard(s) which are chosen based on the educator’s needs assessment. For professional growth plan information and resources, please visit the Professional Educator Standards Board.

Educators may “mix and match” the above options as long as they equate to 100 clock hours.

NOTE: Applications for subsequent renewals shall not be submitted earlier than twelve months prior to the expiration date of the current renewal.
