Michigan Educator Certification/Renewal Information

There were several changes to Michigan Teacher Certification/Renewal requirements effective November 16, 2017. The Michigan Department of Education has created some very useful and easy-to-understand web pages to help negotiate the sometimes confusing processes involved.

From explaining the different educator certificate types and renewal processes to SCECHs (State Continuing Education Credit Hours), DPPD (District Provided PD), and MDE contact names and email addresses, the site has been vastly improved and is easy to navigate.

Begin with MDE’s updated “About Teacher Certification” webpage and follow the links you’re interested in.
