Everyone renews the same way beginning with your next renewal with a simplified, online document professional growth experiences. (not available yet)
Renewal based on accumulating POINTS. 1 credit hour = 15 points. 1 actual seat hour in a DIBELS workshop (for example)=1 point. 1 seat hour in this workshop=1 point.
ANY combination of credit hours, workshops, etc., can be used.
The list of ways to earn points is very broad and open—points for presenting a workshop, points for college coursework, points for workshops, points for staff trainings—all are ways to renew, in any combination.
Once a license is professionalized (Rules 46-47 and Bulletin 400) or Accomplished Practitioner status (Rules 2002) is reached , the ten year renewal will continue, and the teacher will be allowed to use all ten years to earn points, not just the most recent five.
If someone is not currently employed in a school but wishes to renew, the OELD (Office of Educator Licensing and Development) will verify points. http://www.doe.in.gov/educatorlicensing/PGP_Not_Working.html
This testing is available in all but 8 areas. Those areas are EC education, elementary generalist, communications disorders, exceptional needs, fine arts, ENL, and high ability education, as well as CTE/Vocational content areas.
Use this as a guide to determine how CRU’s or CEU’s may convert, depending on contract language.
A candidate for renewal may go back as much as five years to collect points—March 31, 2005 and forward—any professional activity, workshop, training, presentation, etc. can be counted for points towards renewal.
Document by showing agendas, certificates of completion, emails from administration, etc. This is for your records only, in the event a challenge should occur.
