Thousands of Indiana teachers are rushing to begin renewing their professional teaching licenses before new rules state lawmakers approved this spring for the renewal process take effect July 1st. The impending modification advanced quietly through the Indiana General Assembly and was passed in April.
However it didn’t grab the attention of most educators until the Indiana Department of Education sent out guidance in early May on how to meet the new requirements. The change requires teachers who are renewing their license through a “professional growth plan” to complete 15 hours of professional development related specifically to their community’s workforce needs.
From May 1st to June 2nd, the department says 22,760 teachers had professional growth plans in process compared with just 514 plans in process during the same time last year.
