What happens at the end of the exemption period?

At the end of the exemption period, the educator’s certificate will be automatically switched back to INVALID. To maintain a valid certificate, either:

  • The educator will need to apply for a certificate renewal in their ECOS account and pay the renewal for the five-year period confirming CPE compliance, OR
  • The district may request an additional year beyond the initial issuance academic year.
