1. So what is a CEU?
CEU stands for Continuing Education Unit. One CEU is equal to 10 contact hours. The state of Ohio requires every teacher to complete 18 CEU's for renewal of their license. This can be done in several ways: university credit only- 6 semester hours (or 9 quarter hours) equals 18 CEU's, 180 contact hours equals 18 CEU's, or any combination of college credit and CEU's. The committee is always willing to help you add up/ go over CEU count.
2. How can I earn CEUs?
All district-sponsored training or professional development events issue CEUs following participation. Check the "PD Event Scheduler” link to view and register for professional development opportunities. PD events are categorized as “District or “Optional” and CEUs are issued for both. Educational Service Centers (ESCs), the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and numerous other organizations offer CEUs or graduate credit for workshops, conferences, and professional development sessions.
