State Professional Development Requirements

Since 1999, the state of Texas has required all teachers to receive 150 clock hours of professional development in each five year period. Teachers must complete this obligation before they can renew their teaching certificate. 
Please visit the State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC) website below to find information on what courses qualify toward recertification. The site also offers a helpful form you may use to keep track of your professional development hours.
