  • General announcement
At the May 2017 Professional Educator Standards Board meeting, the Board moved to allow a one-time, 3-year renewal to school counselors who hold or have held a residency ESA school counselor certificate with an expiration date prior to 7/1/2019.  This renewal is available until 6/30/2020.  The Board also moved to eliminate the requirement for professional certification program completion for school counselors and added a new continuing option.  The new renewal option allows eligible school counselors to maintain a valid certificate while completing requirements for a professional ESA school counselor or continuing ESA school counselor certificate. or 360-725-6400
