New Certificate Renewal Requirements for Teachers & Administrators

The Washington Legislature has strengthened teacher and administrator recertification with requirements for equity-based school practices. The requirement becomes effective for applications submitted beginning July 1, 2023. Clock hour opportunities will be updated in November.

The Washington Legislature has strengthened teacher and administrator recertification by adding specific requirements for “equity-based school practices."  There are additional requirements for administrators as well.  A full description of the changes is available on the PESB website.  The equity certificate renewal requirement becomes effective for applications submitted beginning July 1, 2023. 

Teachers and administrators can earn these clock hours in a wide variety of venues beyond Highline as well.  Within Highline, we are preparing a process to offer clock hours that meet requirements for “equity-based school practices," and to reflect this in clock hour transcripts in Frontline.  We anticipate an update in early November.

For questions regarding the clock hour approval process, please contact Bernard.Koontz@highlineschools.org. ​​
