Check with your school or district to see if Education Week Certificates of Completion can be used for your PD hours or points. Below are the requirements necessary to provide the information to your districts.

Upon completion or your attendance, you will receive a Certificate of Completion that indicates the PD title, the number of contact hours, the date attended, and a signature from our chief content officer. Educators will take this certificate with supporting description or agenda to their district to be added to their CEU count. Educators who are not employed by a district will send this directly to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction when they submit their renewal request.

Can I use Education Week webinars, online summits, or live PD conferences for continuing education in North Dakota?

In North Dakota, educators must earn graduate credits (15 hours=1 credit) for license renewal. This is all done by in-state universities only. There are a couple of universities that have created a 'cafeteria' credit which allows educators to combine different short PD into a 15-hour credit, which could cover Education Week webinars, online summits, and live PD events. Such hours are approved by their Administrator (then forms are sent to the university for credit). Educators have to confirm with their Administrator to ensure hours are counted.

Check with your school or district to see if Education Week Certificates of Completion can be used for your PD hours or points.

What are the requirements?

Regular license holders must complete 6 semester hours toward renewal. Re-entry license holders must complete 8 semester hours of toward renewal. These credits can obtain through North Dakota colleges and universities.
