The rules for Revision for Educator Preparation and Accountability (REPA) allow Professional Development Units to be used for re-certification of teacher licenses every five (5) years Professional Growth Points are used for recertification of teachers licenses. Ninety (90) points need to be completed during the validity of the license. A teacher may choose to complete 90 hours in one (1) course area or take 90 hours in a combination of the areas to complete the 90 hour requirement for recertification. Courses are taught by Professional Development Facilitators. The subjects have been chosen to keep teacher skills current and to increase student achievement in the classroom. No textbooks are required for these courses. Teachers will be able to complete these web based courses at home in their convenience.
The Wilson Education Center is now offering mini-courses valued at 30 hours each of professional development units at a cost of $199.00
