Licensure Renewal Overview
Basic Guidelines for Licensure Renewal
BT 1, 2, and 3 Teachers must document continuous professional growth during each of their BT years.
A Guide for Licensed Employees
Prepared by the Staffing Department and the Professional Learning Department.
It is the responsibility of each licensed employee to maintain his/her license in a current status to be eligible for employment. A teaching license is valid for a period of five years from the effective date of issuance by the Licensure Section of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. License holders must renew their licenses each five-year period. Each local education agency (LEA) must certify that license renewal requirements have been met in order for its employees’ licenses to be renewed.
The Office of Staffing Department in the Division of Human Resources will facilitate all decisions related to licensure renewal for Guilford County School employees.
NOTIFICATION OF CREDIT
Each year, the Office of Staffing Department will provide each licensed employee a report of his/her accumulated CEU totals earned during the employee’s current renewal cycle. The employee should compare the report with his/her own records or earned renewal credits and notify the Office of Staffing Department in writing of any discrepancies.
