Idaho Educators

As a teacher in Idaho you must obtain 6 semester hours of college credit every 5 years to renew your educator license. In-service hours may be used as a substitute for up to 3 of the 6 semester hours required for certificate renewal. 15 contact hours of professional development are equivalent to 1 in-service hour.

You may now be able to earn 1 clock hour of professional development credit for every Flinn Scientific Best Practices for Teaching Chemistry eLearning Video Series package that you complete. Please contact your district or administrator first if they require pre-approval for professional development activities.

Once you have finished viewing all episodes of a video package, simply print and complete the post activity assessment form and Evaluation Form B7 both located below to keep with your records. You may then select a video package from the dropdown box below and print a Documentation of Professional Development form. Note: You will only be able to print a documentation form for any video that you and watched in its entirety.

You may also consult your state Department of Education website for any details or changes in certificate renewal policy. www.sde.idaho.gov.
