The Bureau of Certification is currently experiencing technical issues with the clearing of criminal background checks for issuance of educator certifications, authorizations, and permits. We are currently working to resolve this issue with our state partners, and hope to have this situation rectified as soon as possible. Thank you.
The Connecticut State Department of Education’s Bureau of Certification issues certificates and other authorizations required to serve in Connecticut public schools and approved private special education programs. We provide guidance on requirements to obtain and maintain licensure.
