  • Steps to Teacher Relicensure: There is more information about the PELSB online license renewal system at: Educator Licensing

    During the 5-year period prior to the expiration of your license:

    • Teachers will need to participate in relicensure experiences for a total of 125 clock hours and secure official verification documents for each experience.
    • There are eight relicensure requirements that must be met by all relicensing teachers.
    • They are listed on the KEY for Determining Clock Hour Credits/Continuing Education Credits (see link below).
    • The Professional Learning Renewal Opportunities and your local teacher association can assist with professional learning opportunities, including the West Metro Uniserve (offered each fall) and the MEA Convention.
    • Grouped by Category A through I, submit one Standard Clock Hour Approval Form (see link below), along with the original verification forms for all experiences, including your TrueNorthLogic/Performance Matters transcript.
    • You need only ONE approval form upon completion of your 125 CEU’s submitted during your relicensure year. Send relicensure packet to Human Resources.
    • The Continuing Education Committee meets three times each year on the second Tuesday of October, February and May. Submissions should be received in Human Resources at least two days prior to the committee meeting.
    • The Educator Licensing system requires online license renewal. Your fees to PELSB are paid online.
    • You will receive an electronic copy of your license. Your license will show up on the PELSB website and you do not need to send a copy to Human Resources. Please email Human Resources to notify us your license renewal has been completed.
