Certification Expiration Status - Renewal Changes
As of August, the Bureau of Certification will no longer send letters to educators to remind them of their certificate’s expiration date.
Previously, certification reminder letters were sent to the educator’s home address listed in their CECS file approximately three months prior to the expiration date. Certified staff members should log into your CECS account to check certification status and update contact information at the beginning and middle of the school year.
Fairfield Nurses participated in an additional emergency training focusing on the new AEDs in our schools. This training along with others attended by the nursing staff yearly, contribute to our efforts to provide the best in emergency care in the school setting.
