AA Courses 2017-2018 School Year


Evaluator Retraining Requirements:

Retraining requirements are connected to each individual’s license renewal cycle.  Not that retraining applies to the first renewal cycle after the date on which the individual completed Growth through Learning.  Retraining is required in every renewal cycle.

Participants can use the Evaluator Retraining Academies for BOTH the evaluator retraining requirement and the annually required Administrator Academy.  A person can complete both the Professional Practice Administrator Academy and the Student Growth Administrator Academy during the same year in order to fulfill evaluator retraining requirements; however, only one would meet the yearly Academy requirement.

  • Evaluators with FY17 license renewal should begin after July 1, 2017 to begin retraining academies, and must be completed by June 20, 2022
  • Evaluators with FY18 license renewal have a short window to complete their retraining academies so should start now as they must be completed by June 20, 2018
  • Evalutors with FY 19, 20 & 21 may begin retraining academies as well, anyone can take the academies and they will count for retraining.  Academies can be taken in any order within a license renewal cycle.

To meet the retraining requirements, you must complete specific approved administrator academies
