Continuing Education

Licensed Administrators:

MN Rule 3512.1200 requires all licensed administrators to accumulate 125 clock hours of continuing education within five years of being issued a continuing license for renewal of a Minnesota administrative license.

“Clock hours” means hours of actual instruction or supervised group activities provided by an organization approved by the Board of School Administrators (BOSA).

MN Statute 3512.1200 Subp. 3. Content of continuing education program. Each continuing education program must consist of at least three clock hours.

Administrators may also earn clock hours by completing a class with a passing grade at a regionally-accredited university or college. One semester credit equals 20 clock hours. Coursework does not need BOSA approval if it is taken at a regionally accredited university or college.

Each school administrator seeking re-licensure is responsible for collecting their own BOSA approved CEUs or official college transcripts. Official BOSA Certificates or college transcripts earned within the last five years are presented to the individual designated by the district superintendent to enter administrative hours on behalf of the administrators within each school district. Clock hours are entered onto a database which PELSB accesses when reviewing the re-licensure application. Inactive administrators must ask the district they are living in or the district they previously worked in to enter the approved clock hours. Private school, charter school or international school administrators with a Minnesota Administrative License may contact the BOSA Office for entering hours.
