POLICY CHANGES REGARDING CEU CREDITS

During the 2011 session, the General Assembly reduced the number of renewal credits required for a teacher to renew a Standard Professional 2 license. The number of renewal credits was reduced from 15 to 7.5. The State Board approved the recommendations of the task force at the November Board meeting. The approved requirements are: 1 renewal credit for literacy, 1 renewal credit in the specific academic subject area, and 5.5 general credits (as determined by
the LEA). Credit is no longer given for teaching experience.


Teachers who complete National Board Certification will earn the 7.5 credits. Those who are in the 10-year National Board renewal cycle will earn 2 credits (1 for content and 1 for literacy).


Principals and assistant principals earn 3 credits focused on the school executives as instructional, human resources and managerial leader. The remaining 4.5 credits may be general credits.


*Rutherford County Schools has a local requirement of 3 Technology credits for all certified staff.
