What if I Am Both a Teacher and an Administrator?
For those certificate holders who are employed as teachers and administrators during the same semester(s), the area in which the majority of work is done determines whether to complete the teacher or administrator certificate renewal requirements.
- For example, an individual who teaches 3 classes out of a 5-period day 3/5) and is an administrator the other 2 periods must complete the recertification for teachers.
A certificate holder working 50% as a teacher and 50% as an administrator during the same semester(s) may choose either renewal process to complete.
- This is an example of an individual who teaches 3 periods out of a 6-period day (3/6), he or she may choose the teacher or administrator renewal process.
An individual employed as a teacher during some semesters and as an administrator for others within the same 5-year validity period must complete teacher requirements for those semesters employed as a teacher and administrator requirements while employed as an administrator.
- An example of this would be the person who teachers 2 years and becomes an administrator for the next 3 years. This individual must complete the requirements for teacher renewal for the first two years and for administrator renewal for the next three years of the validity period.
No certificate holder must complete the renewal process for both teacher and administrator for any given semester. One or the other are required as identified above.
