The Virginia Recertification Manual, July 1990.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
This manual explains the requirements and procedures for recertification of all certified educational personnel in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The need for alternative routes for recertification of experienced educators precipitated the development of an individualized recertification plan based on a point system. The point system for recertification is a component of the Commonwealth's commitment to provide educators with options and opportunities for professional development programs. The basic requirement for recertification in Virginia states that each holder of a renewable certificate shall accrue a total of 180 points during the 5-year validity period of the certificate. The Virginia Recertification Manual is intended to give the professional educator a choice of options for recertification as career needs change. These choices include: the traditional routes of college credit and educational agency's staff development activities; curriculum development, mentorship/supervision, and peer observation; educational travel, professional conferences, and educational projects; and publication of articles and books. The manual provides guidance for all certificate holders as they plan their personal growth within the profession. (LL)
