Learn how to renew a Professional Educator Certification or reinstate a Professional Educator Certification in Hawaii

 

Teaching Certification Renewal

Once you receive your Standard Teaching License in Hawaii, it is valid for five years, after which time you must renew it online. Your information will be automatically updated in the HTSB database, and you will pay renewal fees online as well. Licenses may be renewed up to six months before their expiration date.

You must also complete certain forms and keep them in your files in case of HTSB audit. These include Verification of Experience for Renewal (signed by your supervisor) and Verification of Satisfying Hawaii Teacher Performance Standards Documentation. These forms must be completed, signed and submitted along with any supplemental or supporting documentation prior to your license being renewed. Documentation of approved professional growth activities (listed on the form, along with the appropriate documentation acceptable for each activity) must be submitted to support the Verification of Satisfying Hawaii Teacher Performance Standards Documentation form.
