Renewal of Lapsed Certification

If the certified teacher allows her/his membership to lapse during the period, fails to meet the continuing education requirement, or allows her/his certification to lapse for any reason for a period of one year or more, a new application must be submitted and will be considered for resumption of certified status.

The fees charged under these circumstances will be the same as for a new application for certification unless the board finds that extenuating circumstances justify waiver of the additional fees.
