SWD Point Opportunities

How Can I Earn the SWD Points for Certification Renewal? (You need 20 SWD Points EVERY five years)

*Please Note* You may only earn credit ONCE for a course!

Throughout the school year there will be varied opportunities to attend workshops or other learning opportunities that may count towards the 20 SWD points needed to renew your teaching certificate.

You should always check your SJCSD PL Transcript to make sure you have not previously taken a course.  The quick way to tell if the learning opportunity counts is to look at the Course Name which is a 7-Digit number.  If the 7-Digit number is followed by an E, then the course counts.

The following are specific courses that have been designed to help you fulfill this requirement:
