Fall 2017 Renewal Courses: 
Perfect for Paras!
BOEE Updates
  • Have a Masters Degree? DON'T RENEW - CONVERT your standard license!
    If you have a master's degree and five years of teaching experience, be sure to CONVERT your standard license to a master educator license!
    Standard licenses require 6 credits to renew; master educator licenses only require 4 credit.
  • Online license applications and renewals: All license applications and renewals are completed online. Visit the website to find the link to your license type: www.boee.iowa.gov 
  • No more paper licenses! You will no longer receive a paper copy of your license - plan to fill that picture frame with something else!
  • Find your folder number: https://goo.gl/dvJtqV
  • Earn Credit for completing your IPDP (Individual Professional Development Plan)
    One renewal unit may be earned through verification of the successful completion of an individualized professional development plan as verified by the educator’s supervising licensed evaluator (or school board president in the case of a superintendent). If you are taking a course for credit as part of your IPDP, you can use the credit for the course and the credit for the IPDP completion toward license renewal.
    upload your signed IPDP as part of our renewal documentation.
    Discuss questions with your evaluator or HR department.
