If you are not employed in a district you will need to have 6 semester hours to renew your teaching license. If your license has lapsed for up to five years due to not meeting the professional development requirements may be reinstated upon completion of 9 semester hours of coursework relevant to classroom teaching. If your license has lapsed for more than five years, you will need 12 semester hours of professional coursework to activate your license.
If you are a teacher in Tuscarawas, Carroll, Harrison or Belmont County, contact Dianne Gibbs. You will need to have completed the specified number of class hours for your upgrade, and have the appropriate years of service.
