  • 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
    *Holding IDFPR or applicable national licensure will fulfill all 120 hours of professional development for school support personnel.
