Announcements 

Attention: Several changes in certificate renewal requirements have recently been made or proposed. Please carefully read the appropriate section below to determine the renewal requirements that apply to the certificate or license you hold.  Certificate renewal requirements are determined by the type of certificate and, in some cases, the year in which the certificate expires. Please expand the sections below to see renewal requirements for each certificate type.

A GaPSC rule change regarding renewal of certificates and licenses expiring in 2018 or later was recently initiated. You may read the proposed rule here. If the rule is adopted, renewal requirements for these certificates will be outlined in further detail here.

Standard or Performance-Based Professional Renewal Requirements

For Professional certificates expiring between 2011 and 2017: 

  • Completion of any outstanding Special Georgia Requirements that were outlined when the initial certificate was issued
  • Employment by a Georgia LUA unless exempted as described in the Employment Requirement section below
  • No renewal credit (coursework) is required to renew these certificates

For Professional certificates expiring in 2018 or later:

  • Completion of any outstanding Special Georgia Requirements that were outlined when the initial certificate was issued
  • Employment by a Georgia LUA unless exempted as described in the Employment Requirement section below

Paraprofessional License Renewal Requirements

For Paraprofessional Licenses expiring between 2011 and 2017:

  • Employment by a Georgia LUA
  • No renewal credit (coursework) is required to renew these licenses

For Paraprofessional Licenses expiring in 2018 or later:

  • Employment by a Georgia LUA

Employment Requirement

As of July 1, 2015, employment by a Georgia LUA is required for renewal of any professional Georgia certificate. Those who are not employed at the time of renewal may receive a Certificate of Eligibility that may be converted to a professional certificate upon employment.

However, the employment requirement does not apply to renewal of professional certificates held by educators who have worked for at least one year on a renewable professional Georgia certificate at any time in their career.

The Georgia School Personnel Survey (GSPS)

The Georgia School Personnel Survey (GSPS) is modeled after the student survey and includes 31 questions.  The GSPS is for all teachers, school administrators, certified staff members and other classified staff members (paraprofessionals, office staff, cafeteria workers, custodians, etc.) who work at least 50 percent of the day in the school.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia School Personnel Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online
