LCA Educator Certification

Please see the links below for the most current information and forms on the SC State Department's website in reference to your certification and renewal needs.

Certified educators should refer to the SCDE Renewal Credit Matrix to identify professional development options for earning certification renewal credits.  Educators must complete and submit the LCA Certificate Renewal Approval Form to their principal to receive preliminary approval for desired professional development activities.  After completing the activity, educators should resubmit the completed form to their principal with documentation of the activity to have recertification credits awarded.

The school leader or designee is responsible for forwarding the signed approval form and all appropriate activity documentation to while maintaining a copy for their own records.  Please note that completed approval forms should be submitted within 30 days of the completion of the professional development activity.  Renewal credit forms are processed within 30 days of receipt.
