State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) are state-approved workshops, trainings, online courses, meetings, or conferences that are used for the renewal of educator certificates issued by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). SCECHs equal the total instructional hours in a program/meeting.
In partnership with our SCECH Sponsor, GPS Solutions, #T.E.A.C.H. offers the equivalent of between 362 SCECH hours (Elementary & Secondary Certifications) and 438 SCECH hours (K-12 Certifications). You must already possess your standard or professional certification and have an assigned PIC number to receive SCECH's. Additionally, you cannot receive SCECH credit for any courses that were waived.
MDE requires 6 credit hours or the equivalent every five years to renew your standard or professional certification. Every 25 SCECH hours equals 1 Credit hour. Therefore, 150 SCECH's will meet the MDE requirement.
