How do I renew a teaching certificate in ID?
Teachers in Idaho may get details on professional certificate renewal, forms for recertification, and the recertification process visit the Idaho State Department of Education. Teaching certificates in ID are valid for five (5) years from September 1 to August 31.
What state requirements does a teacher in Idaho need to meet for renewal?
- educationally related to the individualized professional learning plan (IPLP) or related to the professional practice of the applicant
- tied to content areas and/or an area of any other endorsement
- specific to pedagogical best practices or for administrative/teacher leadership
- tied to a specific area of need designated by district administration
A maximum of three in-service credits may be applied toward the renewal of a teacher’s credential. 15 clock hours of formal instruction = 1 in-service credit. As of May 2019, 5 hour trainings can be combined in order to reach the minimum of 15 clock hours required to equal one renewal credit.
The Idaho District In-service form must be completed by the proper official at an Idaho district/charter school/private school for the in-service to count toward certificate renewal.
