Administrative Certificate Renewal Requirement*

In conjunction with the passage of the Career Ladder legislation in 2015 (H296), lawmakers amended Idaho Code §33-1204 to include a coursework requirement for all Idaho administrators seeking renewal of their administrative certificate. In addition to a lab component to ensure rater–reliability in evaluation, the required coursework must also include the following:

Understanding Professional Practice in Idaho Evaluation
  • Gathering accurate evidence and artifacts
  • Understanding and using the Framework rubric with fidelity
  • Proof of calibration and interrater reliability
  • Ability to provide effective feedback for teacher growth
  • Understanding and advising teachers on the IPLP and portfolio development
Understanding Student Achievement/Growth in Idaho Evaluation
  • Understanding how student growth measures impact summative evaluation
  • Proficiency in assessment literacy

*Any 3-credit course in the Framework with a lab component completed and transcripted prior to Fall 2017 will be accepted. OSBE and SDE Certification are working together to ensure that all administrators who took a class designed to meet this requirement prior to the 17-18 school year will be able to recertify without concern.
