Teacher Licensure

Teacher licensing is an individual teacher's responsibility, but as the District Continuing Education Committee, we want to assist you however we can, to simplify the process of license renewal.  The following links and documents, starting with "Frequently Asked Questions," should help explain the requirements and guide you through the procedures.  Please contact your committee representative if you need help.
