Employee CEU History
  • All renewal and continuing education credit data has to be recorded by NRMPS personnel – this means that the data may not be entered for some time after you complete a workshop or activity.
  • License renewal is the responsibility of each individual. The Nash-Rocky Mount Public School System is committed to supporting this process by offering high-quality professional development opportunities and reporting completion of activities. 
  • Errors do occur in the reporting and data entry process. It is each employee’s responsibility to contact personnel if there are questions regarding the renewal report.
  • The online report is only available from a computer within the NRMPS network. You cannot access this information from home. This is a safety feature since your SS# is required.
NRMPS Renewal Requirements

Certified employees with a continuing license must earn 7.5 CEU's during their five-year license renewal cycle.  Requirements include 1 renewal credit for literacy, 1 renewal credit in the academic subject area, and 5.5 general credits (not to include years of experience) in each 5-year renewal cycle.  The Nash-Rocky Mount School System requires 1 of the 5.5 general credits to be technology.  Literacy now applies to all K-12 educators, and the intent of the policy includes Student Service Personnel. 
Renewal and Reinstatement Guidelines

During the 2011 session, the General Assembly reduced the number of renewal credits required to renew a Standard Professional 2 license from 15 to 7.5. Additional legislated changes are also noted. As a result, the State Board of Education approved the following requirements to renew the Standard Professional 2.
