Professional Development Audits

Beginning with the 2015 – 2020 renewal cycle, and every cycle thereafter, teachers and school support services personnel must complete 120 hours of professional development to renew regardless of the number or types of degrees held.  Acceptable Professional Development includes coursework from a regionally accredited Illinois college or university, National Board Certification, National Licenses (for school support personnel), and activities provided only by an Approved Illinois Professional Development Provider. Professional development credit is awarded on a 1:1 basis – 1 clock hour of attendance = 1 professional development hour.

ISBE Professional Development Requirements

During each school year, if ISBE audits an educator’s professional development activities, the licensee must submit all of the required documentation to ISBE.
