  • 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
    *Holding IDFPR or applicable national licensure will fulfill all 120 hours of professional development for school support personnel.
  • Administrators who are not National Board Certified: 100 hours + 1 Administrator Academy per fiscal year

In an effort to help you earn your required hours, ROE26 offers the professional development tools to succeed through its workshops, face-to-face trainings, conferences, and partnerships to offer online opportunities.
