Keeping your certification up to date is your responsibility and not the responsibility of the school district in which you were hired. Even if you do not have the full amount of money necessary to renew your certificate before it expires, you should still send in the $50 application fee and the required paperwork at least 6-12 weeks in advance of your certificate’s expiration date in order to be sure that your certificate is renewed in a timely manner. Your employment depends on it.

If you move or change your email, you should send the State Department of Education a notification for their files. The best way to make sure that the SDE has your current contact information is to create a certification account. You can also update your information by sending an email to teacher.cert@ct.gov
