    changes to sb-ceuS

    The Michigan Legislature adopted new rules on May 18, 2012 for renewal of Professional Teaching Certificates. SB-CEUs are now known as State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs).

    For example, instead of earning 3.0 SB-CEUs at an offering, you will earn 30 SCECHs. The amount of credit is the same, it is only calculated differently. Please click here for a pamphlet explaining SCECHs.
