Meeting Delaware State Requirements

What’s Your Goal?

Renew My Delaware License

We have helped thousands of Delaware teachers meet their license renewal requirements, increase their salaries and advance their careers.

Renew Your License

A Continuing License is valid for 5 years. Ninety (90) clock hours are required for renewal with least one-half of the required clock hours (45) earned by activities relating to the educator’s work with students or staff.

Be sure to get Teaching Channel with Learners Edge offerings for clock hours pre-approved by your district or charter school. If you are not currently employed with a Delaware district or charter school, the Delaware Department of Education will be responsible for review, verification, and approval of the clock hours.

Teaching Channel with Learners Edge recommends choosing three of the following courses (each worth 37.5 hours) to meet your renewal requirements:

PD454: Bridge the Unfinished Learning Gap with Acceleration

PD453: Strategies for Anxiety in Today’s Schools

PD452: Critical Thinking for Media Literacy and Fake News

PD451: High Leverage Practices for Students with Disabilities

PD450: Teaching & Learning Online Through the Lens of Equity

For more information, visit the Delaware Department of Education website or the Renewals User Guide.

Salary Advancement

Salary increments, also known as Plus Credits, for Delaware educators are governed by Delaware Code and approved through the Delaware Department of Education. Eligibility for salary increments is dependent on current educational status as follows:

  • If requesting a Bachelor’s Plus, the educator must be enrolled in a Master’s program.
  • If requesting a Master’s Level, the educator’s Master degree must relate to the position in which the applicant is employed or instructing.
  • If requesting a Master’s Plus, the educator must be enrolled in graduate level coursework.
  • If requesting a Doctorate, the educator’s Doctorate degree must relate to the position in which they are employed or instructing.

More information can be found on the Delaware Department of Education’s Graduate Level Salary Increments page.

Why You Should Enroll in Courses as a Long-Term Investment

In many districts, teachers gain a salary increase when they accrue graduate-level credits. But have you considered the money you leave on the table when you delay accruing those credits?

Teachers who gain an extra $8K in salary 20 years before retirement bring home an extra $160K in earnings. And those teachers may also receive a higher pension by finishing their careers at an advance salary level. Compare that to the educator who achieves that goal 10 years later: $80K less income. See what credit accrual could mean for you by using our salary calculator. Be sure to check our course bundles that let you accrue credits at less cost and on a pay-as-you-learn plan.
