  • Changes coming to teacher certificate renewal

    Beginning July 1, as part of the 100 clock hours required for certificate renewal, teachers must complete 15 clock hours, or at least one goal of a professional growth plan (PGP), focused on equity-based school practices aligned to the Cultural Competency, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (CCDEI) standards. Administrators have similar requirements. Educators need to continue to meet other certificate renewal requirements such as STEM. NBCTs meet these requirements by maintaining a valid National Board certificate.

    WEA offers clock hours at little or no cost to support educators in meeting their certificate renewal requirements. Check out the "Events &Training" tab. Renew your certificate through OSPI E-Certification.
