A valid Florida Educator's Certificate is required under Florida law by all teachers. Securing and updating a certificate is the responsibility of the teacher. SCPS Certification staff is here to provide you with guidance, but you must fulfill the requirements and complete all procedures. If you hold a Professional Educator Certificate, your application for a change/addition and renewal must be submitted for processing through the Seminole County Public Schools Certification Office.
All certification processes for an individual that holds an active three year temporary Florida Educator certificate MUST be done directly with the State.
