Continuing Education

Welcome to the Faribault Public School Continuing Education web page. On this page will find the different clock hour categories, and the renewal requirement grid.  Also, there is a generic CEU (continuing education unit) certificate for experiences that may not give a formal certificate but meet requirements for a licensure area. One can have the presenter verify your attendance by signing the form.  

CEU applications will only be accepted using the Google Form found on this page. Click on the tab CEU Application Form below, then a new tab will appear below. A form will need to be completed for each CEU certificate since only one upload is allowed per form. There is the option of scanning upto 5 certificates into one upload. Please do not scan more than 5 certificates! CEU certificates will need to be in the form of a pdf or jpeg.

The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) is where to renew all types of existing licenses, track the status of an application, or to view your clock hour record.  Here is the link to PELSB

The Continuing Education Committee meets at least four times a year. On the first Tuesday of the month a meeting is held the committee will process any applications and record the CEUs online at the PELSB website.  

If you have any questions please email Continuing Education.
