Senior Teacher Waiver Eligibility

As a certified educator, you may qualify for senior status if:

  • you have completed at least 25 years of public or approved non-public professional school service OR are/will be at least 55 years of age any time within the validity dates of the certificate
  • AND

  • are employed with HCPSS in a permanent position (not a temporary position).

A certified educator who qualifies for the senior teacher waiver is no longer required to complete course work to renew certification, however if you terminate your permanent employment with HPCSS, you are no longer eligible for the senior teacher waiver and you must complete the appropriate renewal requirements.
