Professional Staff Certification Licensure and Credential Requirements: GCFC
Updated

Responsibility for maintaining and renewing an employee’s certification rests solely with the individual teacher. According to Colorado law, a teacher shall hold a valid license, certificate or letter of authorization during all periods of employment by a school district as a teacher. Failure to maintain a current teaching license or certificate may result in suspension from assignment without pay. In addition, failure to maintain proper licensure or certification shall be grounds for dismissal.

All prospective employees must present evidence that they possess appropriate certification prior to employment. A certificate or letter of authorization shall be maintained in the personnel file. The school district shall periodically conduct a systematic review of all professional staff to ensure that they hold the proper license, certificate or letter of authorization.
