This schedule is for hiring purposes only. No yearly salary increases are automatically granted. Neither past nor future salaries can be calculated, assumed, or predicted on the basis of this schedule.

Certification Renewal

Certification renewal information is located on the Texas Education Agency's website.
All standard, probationary and one-year certificates have expiration dates.

  • One-year certificates expire in one year and are not renewed.
  • Probationary certificates may be renewed up to two times depending on the ACP program.
  • Standard Certificates require 150 CPE hours to renew.

Provisional Certificates do not have an expiration date.
If the teacher obtains a standard certificate later on, then the 150 CPE hours are required to renew the standard certificate.
It is the teacher's responsibility to make sure that his or her certificate is renewed prior to the expiration date.

BISD Certified Teacher Application Requirements

An applicant must have at least a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. Exceptions to the degree may be made for teachers of vocational and trade classes who present trade and industrial training records in compliance with the Texas Education Agency. According to the laws of Texas, every person paid for instructional work in the public schools must have registered a valid Texas Teacher's Certificate with the superintendent of that school district. Graduates of a Texas college or university should contact the head of the education department of the college or university to secure a Texas Teacher's Certificate.

He/she may then apply to a college, university or private provider of instruction to become alternatively certified to teach in the State of Texas.

Upon completion of registration in an alternative certification program, one may apply for consideration for employment within Bridgeport ISD in a current vacant position.
