SCECHs....What you need to know!
State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) can be utilized to renew professional certifications. SCECHs are available for MANY of our professional learning opportunities at C.O.O.R ISD.
A total of 150 SCECHs, DPPD or College Credit Equivalent (or combination of each), within a five year period, is now needed for renewal. For information on calculating renewal credits, click HERE! Another helpful resource is the Decision Tree for Professional Certification Renewals. You may earn 25 SCECHs for semester-long and year-long Professional Development events in the Non-Traditional Category. Please see informational PDF below.
