CEU Opportunities

Looking for CEU opportunities to meet the re-licensure requirements? Check out the offerings under the Professional Development tab of this website or visit the Trainings page of the PELSB website!


FLAS Pre-Approval Travel/Work Experience Form

Educators must request prior approval of CEUs for travel or work experiences by completing a copy of the FLAS Travel/Work Experience Pre-Approval Form and submitting it to their CEU Committee member in advance of the experience for which they are requesting the CEUs.

Friendly Reminders from the CEU Committee

  • Login to PELSB to review your re-licensure status throughout the school year.

  • When using the Google form, enter your information accurately (file folder #, dates, mandatory requirements, etc.)

  • Submit your CEUs throughout the year, rather than waiting and submitting them all at once.

  • You do not have to submit additional hours beyond the required 125, other than those needed to meet the mandatory requirements.

  • Keep a copy of any CEUs you submit via the Google Form.

  • Keep in mind that the committee members are your colleagues and are not paid for this work...treat them kindly, and submit your CEU information in a timely manner to make their job easier!

  • In the event you make an error in your Google form submission, email your CEU committee building representative
