Teacher Clock Hours
To maintain their certification, educators are required by law to complete continuing education credits throughout their career. These credits are offered through “clock hours,” which are units of credit assigned to educators at a professional development or training event. Clock hour rules are available in Chapter 181-85 WAC(link is external). (1)
Green River and Highline College are both approved providers of clock hours. Clock hours MUST be requested PRIOR to the beginning of class. Per OSPI, we are not allowed to issue clock hours after the class begins.
Information on who to contact regarding clock hours is listed in the registration information for class.
