Educator certifications can be verified through the CSDE's Online Certification Lookup.
Certification Renewal Process
The State of Connecticut Certification website provides information on certification rules, regulations and requirements.
Renewal of Certification:
- The district recommends that three months prior to the expiration of your certification, please begin the recertification process by submitting an application using the State of Connecticut Certification website automated system. (Note: This can be done up to six months prior to the expiration of your certification.)
- If you are currently employed, you will be asked to submit an ED 126 Statement of Professional Experience form, which needs to be completed by the school district, verifying your working experience.
Complete the top portion of the ED 126 form, and send it to:
Kim Hawreluk, Office Support Specialist
Stamford Public Schools - Human Resources Department
5th Floor, Government Center
When the ED 126 form is complete, Human Resources will return it to you for submission to the State of Connecticut.
- Upon receipt of your renewed educator certification in the mail, please forward a photocopy to Human Resources through interoffice mail. This copy will be used to update our systems, and will be added to your personnel file.
