PELSB Recommendations for Meeting the Reading Requirement for Licensure Renewal

As part of the licensure renewal process, Tier 3 and Tier 4 teachers must submit evidence of professional development and growth in reading preparation, including the areas of fluency, phonemic awareness, phonics, reading comprehension, and vocabulary development. More information about the reading requirement is available in the Reading Recommendation for Licensure Renewal document.

PELSB is still accepting applications from organizations who wish to offer professional development opportunities for reading preparation.

  • Reading Rockets Course Modules:This is a free, online professional development opportunity.  However, there is not a certificate of completion available, so you may want to check with your licensure renewal committee prior to completion.  You may consider inquiring with your renewal committee to determine whether completing the integrated post-tests or assignments could demonstrate completion. 
In addition to Reading Rockets Course Modules, PELSB recommends these reading professional development opportunities.

Reading Professional Development Applications

Organizations may seek to have professional development opportunities for reading preparation recommended by PELSB. Organizations must complete the Reading Professional Development Application form and submit additional evidence and materials to be recommended.

If recommended, PELSB will provide information about the professional development opportunities on this page with guidance for relicensure committees to accept the training as meeting the reading renewal requirement.
