Licensure Renewal

The commitment to continuous learning is important, and the renewal process ensures that school personnel continually update their professional knowledge and skills. Teaching licenses may be renewed upon the completion of a total of 180 professional development points. Please refer to the Virginia Department of Education Teacher Licensure Renewal Manual. You must earn these points during the validity period of your license and list them on an Individualized Renewal Record (IRR), also available on the same link.

It is advised that you consult with your principal or advisor annually, or until all 180 points have been accrued, to review, verify, and sign your IRR form.

Please note: Provisional licenses are not renewable – requirements must be completed by the expiration date on the Provisional license.

For License Renewal, submit the following to HCPS Human Resources-Licensure:

  • Renewals may be submitted beginning January 1 of the renewal year. All renewals are due no later than March 15 for licenses expiring June 30 of the current school year. Failure to submit renewal information will result in your contract being held until requirements are submitted or until June, at which time the HR Department will begin seeking a qualified replacement for the position.

  • Original, completed Individualized Renewal Record (IRR form) signed by your Principal/Advisor, Assistant Principal or Principal’s designee.

  • Original, official transcripts reflecting the coursework completed for renewal. Please be aware that e-scrip transcripts are not currently recognized as official by the VDOE, therefore, HCPS will not accept e-scrip (electronic) as official.

  • Certificate of Completion for Child Abuse and Neglect Module;

  • Certificate of Completion for CPR, AED, and First Aid Module;

  • Certified of Completion for Dyslexia Training Module;

  • If applicable, a Certificate of Completion for the Virginia State and Local Civic Education Module Certificate;

  • If applicable, a Certificate of Completion for the School Counselor's Training. 

Renewal Fee

Hanover County Public Schools pays the $50 fee for license renewal. Other fees for name changes, adding endorsements, adding degrees, etc., must be paid by the license holder. Checks must be made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia.

Please send completed IRR form signed by your principal/advisor, assistant principal, or principal’s designee (along with certificates of completion for all required trainings), to Human Resources-Licensure at the HCPS School Board Office: 200 Berkley Street, Ashland, VA 23005.
