Remember, there are longer any reductions for advanced degrees since “pre-July 1, 2014” activities, as allowed under 25.800(e) of Administrative Code, were last applicable to FY 2019 license renewal.
Below is the baseline number of professional development hours educators will owe for license renewal, beginning with licenses renewed this spring/summer:
- Licensees Holding National Board for Professional Teachers Certification: 60 hours (if serving in an administrative role, 1 Administrator Academy per year is also required)
- Teachers who are not National Board Certified: 120 hours
- School Support Personnel who are not National Board Certified or not IDFPR or nationally licensed*: 120 hours
- Administrators who are not National Board Certified: 100 hours + 1 Administrator Academy per fiscal year
*Holding IDFPR or applicable national licensure will fulfill all 120 hours of professional development for school support personnel.
Educators who are due to renew their licenses this spring/summer should begin taking additional professional development hours now so they will be able to accumulate the required hours needed to renew their licenses.
