State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs)

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) are State Board approved in-service, workshop, training, or conference hours that are used as an alternative to renewing selected educator certificates issued by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE).  SCECHs are awarded through the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS).

Individuals who hold certificates through the Office of Educator Excellence with the Michigan Department of Education are eligible to use SCECHs for renewal. 

Once the SCECHS are uploaded, participants will receive an email directing them to the web address to review their account and complete an evaluation (as this is still required after attendance of a program).  After the evaluation is completed, SCECHs will be awarded. 

SCECH Program Process 

Individual programs may offer SCECHs if the program meets the time requirements and an application and program agenda are submitted 40 days prior to the offered program’s begin date (SCECHs cannot be granted retroactively).  Please email the Livingston County SCECH coordinator before beginning the process at

District Provided Professional Development (DPPD)

Educators will be unable to manually enter SCHECHs into their MOECS account for DPPD that occurs after July 1, 2020. 

Each district in Livingston County is managing DPPD hours for its educators.  Districts will submit a program application to MDE for approval and upload each educators’ clock hours earned.  Please contact your district with any questions.
