Reactivate

  • If you are currently practicing with a Student Services classification certificate and it has expired or will expire soon, and you will not complete all requirements for upgrading within the next school year, you and your district will need to submit the online Reactivation application.
  • If you are not currently practicing with a Student Services certificate and have NOT completed all requirements for upgrading, but you have recently become employed, you and your district will need to submit an online Reactivation application.

If your current background check clearance is over a year old, you will be required to complete a new fingerprint-based background check.

  • If you are not currently practicing with a Student Services certificate, you will need to complete a 2-3 semester hour college course. The course must be at the graduate level. It should be relevant to your professional growth as an educator. It should not be a repeat of a course you have already completed. Once you complete the course and it is posted on a transcript, you will need to complete the online Reactivation application. The course you choose to use for reactivation may not be over six months old at the time you submit the reactivation application. Original transcripts verifying completion of the course must be submitted to the department for verification.

If your current background check clearance is over a year old, you will be required to complete a new fingerprint-based background check.
