New Hampshire Teaching License Renewal
Certified teachers in New Hampshire who are currently employed in a New Hampshire school system may renew their teaching credentials online via the Educator Information System (EIS). Renewal payments may be made online and superintendent recommendations for teacher renewal are also to be submitted online. The superintendent recommendation verifies that you have completed adequate professional development during the term of your certificate for renewal. Contact the Professional Development Committee in your school district for information on the renewal process.
New Hampshire teachers employed in a non-public or charter school without a Professional Development Master Plan must complete a minimum of 75 continuing education hours: 30 hours for each specific endorsement area held and 45 hours aligned with the Professional Education Requirements (Ed 505.07) within the three-year period prior to the renewal application date.
Take a look at these examples to see how you can earn your continuing education hours:
Example 1: Physical Education/Coaching/Health Focus
5055: Boosting Social Emotional Learning through Sport and Physical Education (45 hours)
Example 2: Social Studies Focus
133: Making Sense of Adolescence (10 hours)
Educators under the Professional Development Master Plan applying for renewal of their credential must have the approval of the local superintendent, district administrator or nonpublic school administrator for the successful completion of the educator’s individual professional development plan.
