Conditional Certificate (1-year certificate)

  • Issued to teachers who need to complete coursework to become state certified. The Superintendent files a Conditional Affidavit with the MDOE.

  • Considering your input, the Steering Committee assigns a Mentor.

  • You select your Support Team if necessary (see descriptions)

  • Your Mentor will need a Conditional Checklist for Final Report.

  • You and your Mentor develop a TAP for Steering Committee approval, (a) One classroom goal. (b) One coursework goal.

  • Give a copy of your proposed TAP to your building representative. (See Conditional Checklist for Final Report for the submission date of your TAP.)

  • Upon Steering Committee approval of your TAP, you and your mentor will monitor your progress in meeting the goals you set for yourself in your TAP.

  • Your Mentor observes you a minimum of 3 times over the three years of your certificate.

  • Once you and your Mentor are satisfied that all TAP goals have been met, and your mentor has observed you in action at least 3 times, your mentor and support team members (if you have one) will sign the Conditional Checklist for Final Report and your Mentor will give it to your building representative to submit for Steering Committee approval and recommendation.

  • In addition to the above steps, the teacher holding a Conditional Certificate must complete coursework prescribed in the MDOE letter you received with your Conditional Certificate. A copy of official transcript documentation must precede or accompany your Conditional Checklist for Final Report when it is forwarded to the Steering Committee.

  • Shortly after your mentor submits the Conditional Checklist for Final Report, the Certification Steering Committee chair will recommend you for a provisional certification. This is done through the DOE teacher portal.

  • You will need to create an account in the DOE teacher portal. You will need to follow the online instructions (you may be required to upload your transcripts and other work that was required in the MDOE letter you originally received) and pay your renewal fee. It is imperative that you submit all paperwork and fees prior to the expiration date on your certification in order to maintain your CHRC status.

  • Remember, this is a three-year certificate. The above process will need to be repeated each year that you hold a Conditional Certificate (which may include a new affidavit from the Superintendent - this is not automatic, but rather based on satisfactory progress toward coursework completion).
