From the GaPSC regarding the Certification Renewal process developments.  

In summary:

 ·         In summer 2013, A taskforce will be convened  with the charge of developing new certification renewal requirements.  These new requirements  which will correspond with the ‘to be proposed’ new tiered certification.

·         The current temporary suspension of the need for PLU’s or the equivalent for certification renewal is set to expire in 2016. 

·         Those individuals with certificates expiring 2016 or 2017 (June 30th of either year) will be grandfathered in under the ‘old rules’.  Those  educators will need to document 10 PLUs or the equivalent as a requirement for certificate renewal.
