WEA STEM Certificate Renewal Requirements
STEM Certificate Renewal Requirement
To renew a certificate, teachers with STEM-related endorsements must complete at least 15 clock hours, the equivalent in credit, or at least one goal from a professional growth plan (PGP) with an emphasis on STEM integration. STEM integration is the combination of at least two STEM components (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Learn more about the STEM certificate renewal requirement from the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB). For questions on your individual certificate renewal, contact the OSPI certification office.
