One of the most vital qualities of all professionals is the commitment to continuous learning and growth in knowledge and skill. The renewal process ensures that school personnel continually update their professional knowledge and skills. The division superintendent license, postgraduate professional license, collegiate professional license, pupil personnel services license, vocational evaluator license (no longer issued), school manager license, or technical professional license may be renewed upon the completion of 180 professional development points within a five-year period based on an individualized professional development plan.
License holders are responsible for satisfying license renewal requirements as set forth in the Licensure Regulations for School Personnel and the Code of Virginia. The Virginia Licensure Renewal Manual provides guidance for all license holders as they plan their personal growth within the profession.
