General Assembly Action

The 2018 General Assembly passed House Bill 1125 and Senate Bill 349 that eliminated the following requirements from the Code of Virginia and the Licensure Regulations for School Personnel

 Effective July 1, 2018, individuals seeking initial licensure or licensure renewal will no longer be required to meet these requirements.  Documentation of the educational technology requirements will not need to be submitted to the Division of Teacher Education and Licensure when an individual applies for an initial license or license renewal.

 If you have any questions about the implementation of this legislation, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Patty S. Pitts, Assistant Superintendent for Teacher Education and Licensure, by phone at (804) 371-2522 or by email at
