Please be sure to indicate Flagler #18 as your district affiliation. Please visit the FLDOE website for instructions about how to use the Bureau of Educator Certification Online Licensing Service.

Professional Certification Methods of Renewal

  • Two or fewer subjects require a minimum of 120 total points for renewal of both subject areas, including 20 ESE in-service points for teaching students with disabilities.
  • Three or more subjects require renewal of all subjects. Each subject requires 60 points. Each renewal requires a minimum of 120 points, including 20 ESE in-service points for teaching students with disabilities.

Note: Endorsements do not require renewal

Alternative Methods Equivalent to 60 In-Service Points
  • Retaking and passing the subject area exam in your certified area during the validity period.
  • A three-semester hour course from an accredited college or university in Education or any subject in which the state offers certification.
  • National Board Certification may be used for renewal as long as it is valid during the validity period of the Florida certificate.
