Please be reminded that your credential is a condition of employment and it is your responsibility to be sure that it covers the area of your service. Renewing your credential in a timely fashion is also your responsibility.

As of January 1, 2007, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing is no longer accepting paper applications for the renewal of credentials. All renewals must be done on-line at the link provided below. You will need a credit card or other acceptable means of paying on-line at the time of renewal.

Professional Growth Hours are no longer a requirement for renewing a credential in California.

All Teachers in the OUHSD are required to have a CLAD authorization to serve English Language Learners. Rita Stout, Human Resources Analyst for Credentials is available to assist you with any questions you may have about these processes.
