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 re-certification 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 in ALL CAPS and in BLUE INK, and interoffice it to Taryn Olin at Central Office. If you are no longer employed with Vernon Public Schools, please send it to:
Office of the Assistant Superintendent
Vernon Public Schools
30 Park Street
PO Box 600
Vernon, CT 06066
When the ED 126 form is complete, the Assistant Superintendent’s Office will email it to the State on your behalf. If you would like a copy of the form, please kindly request one from Taryn Olin at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Assistant Superintendent’s Office.
- Upon receipt of your renewed educator certification in the mail, please forward a photocopy to the Assistant Superintendent's Office through interoffice mail. This copy will be used to update our systems, and will be added to your personnel file.
