Human Resources


The registration window for the second cohort for Classroom Environment micro-credential is now open!

Year 1 & 2 Educators:

Year 1 and 2 educators are encouraged to begin APLI-II as soon as they are able because the program was designed to take 1.25 years (5 quarters) to complete. Once this advancement program and three years of teaching have successfully been completed, educators are eligible to receive a Level II license.  

Year 3 & 4 Educators  
The Year 3 and 4 educators may choose to participate in APLI-II or can choose to complete a dossier. In choosing to participate in APLI-II, based on the educator’s district deadlines for submitting a Level II license, there could be a difference in when a pay increase could go into effect because the program was designed to take 1.25 years (5 quarters) to complete. A dossier takes one year to complete.
