Please be advised that on May 18th, 2012, the state legislature adopted new rules that govern teacher certificates. Teachers renewing their Professional Education Certificates or their Occupational Education Certificates may now use the professional development provided by the school districts. To assist those that take advantage of this method the district can produce professional development records going back to the 2010-2011 school year. This is important to note when requesting a teacher certification renewal using this newly approved method. We cannot produce records from anytime before the 2010-2011 school year. You can only count PD days that you were physically in attendance.
If the PD was done at the building level then the signature on the form must come from the building administrator that supervised the PD. That building supervisor must be able to produce a sign-in sheet of the teacher’s attendance for purposes of future audits.
