High Probability Elements Header
  • Effective with Florida Professional Certificates Expiring June 30, 2025, or Later
    (Does not apply to Educators with a Local, District-Issued Broward Certificate)

    If your Florida five-year professional certificate has an expiration date of June 30,2025, or later AND you have one of the certification areas identified below on your teaching certificate, you will need to meet a new 40-point reading renewal requirement per State Board Rule 6-4.0051.  This is in addition to the current 20 points in Teaching Students with Disabilities (SWD) that is required by all who renew the State Florida professional certificate. The new requirement applies to all holders of a Florida professional teaching certificate in one of the specified areas, regardless of job assignment or position.

    See below for PD courses that will satisfy both the 20-hour SWD and the new 40-point Reading requirement simultaneously.
