Check certification status on Teacher411
If you’re not sure when your certification expires, visit teacher411.sd.gov/ to find out. The 411 system lists information from your certification record, including the expiration year, and core content teaching assignments you can accept as a highly qualified teacher.
You can submit your renewal application at any point before July 1, as that is the date when all certificates expire. If you still have credits to complete over the summer, your application will be held for processing until final credit documentation is received. However, earlier is better because summer processing can take as long as 12 weeks.
