Licensed employees are required to hold a valid North Carolina Professional Educator's license. Those that hold a Standard Professional II Professional Educator's license are responsible for licensure renewal every five years. Licensure renewal requires educators participate in professional development opportunities to earn "credits" or Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Licensure Renewal

It is the responsibility of each licensed employee to maintain his/her license in a current status to be eligible for employment. A teaching license is valid for a period of five years from the effective date of issuance by the Licensure Section of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. License holders must renew their licenses each five-year period. Each local education agency must certify that license renewal requirements have been met in order for its employees' licenses to be renewed. The HR Department will facilitate all decisions related to licensure renewal for HPS employees.
