Continuing Teacher and Leadership Education

Effective July 1, 2016, Professional Development was replaced by Continuing Teacher and Leadership Education (CTLE) Requirements. All PD periods expired on June 30, 2016 and reset as of July 1, 2016. Information regarding Registration and CTLE can be found on the website for the Office of Teaching Initiatives.

Initial Re-issuance certificates:

75 clock hours of Professional Development must be completed PRIOR to application for certificate reissuance and the PD must be in the content or content teaching area of the certificate.

These 75 hours are not entered into TEACH by the school district (or the applicant themselves). PD can be entered in Frontline Professional Growth but you must also be able to prove completion of these 75 hours with physical documentation.
