Certification

Conroe ISD

If you are an employee with Conroe ISD and need to add or update areas to your current certification, please notify Claire Amos. Your official certification will be verified with TEA and updates will be made in the Conroe ISD system. TEA does not notify Conroe ISD if you make changes, update, or renew your certificate.

You may view your current certifications on file with Conroe ISD in your Employee Access Center.

If you do not have a Bachelor’s degree, please go to the university of your choice with a teacher education program, and meet with an adviser to establish a degree plan. There are many universities in our area that offer teaching certification programs. Teacher certification can be obtained in Career and Technical Education without a degree. (example: Auto Repair, Cosmetology, etc.)

Observations for Teacher Preparation Programs

Due to safety protocols in place for COVID-19, Conroe ISD is not allowing field observations to be conducted at the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Individuals needing classroom observation hours to fulfill teacher preparation program or university requirements should contact their program or university for guidance. We look forward to reinstating this practice as soon as appropriate.

Adding Certification by Exam

If you already have a Texas standard teaching certificate, and you have taken and passed an additional certification exam, please follow these steps to add your new certification area to your existing certificate:

  1. Log into your TEAL account and click the link to Additional Certification by Examination.
  2. You must submit the fee to TEA before your application will be processed. Only one fee is required to issue all certificates on this application.

Educational Aide Certificates

Federal, state, and local guidelines require an employed Educational Aide to hold a valid Educational Aide Certificate. The Educational Aide Certificate is no longer available for renewal. The employee must submit an application and $17 fee for the new 2-year, non-renewable Educational Aide certificate on the Texas Education Agency website through the TEA Educator TEAL account.

If you have any questions, please call TEA at 512-936-8400.
