With adoption of State Board of Education language defining consistently high-performing teachers, certain educators with professional, lead professional or senior professional teaching licenses may not need to complete additional coursework or equivalent continuing education credits to renew their educator licenses. An educator who meets the State Board definition of consistently high-performing teacher is exempt from the additional coursework requirement for the renewal of a professional educator license for the next renewal cycle. Beginning the afternoon of Jan. 18, the CORE licensure application will ask each local professional development committee chair or co-chair to indicate whether or not an applicant meets the eligibility criteria.
