SCECHs and DPPD Hours

LISD's State Continuing Education Clock Hours page

Beginning July 1, 2020, DPPD has been converted to SCECH hours.  Each district must designate a SCECH Coordinator to upload DPPD plans into MOECS and upload educator SCECH hours.  If you are unsure who your local district SCECH Coordinator is, please contact Julie Burkeen.

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" page and follow the links you’re interested in.
