You must hold a valid certificate to teach in Cullman County Schools.

For additional information regarding Alabama certification requirements, visit the Teacher Certification section of the Alabama Department of Education website at http://www.alsde.edu or http://tcert.alsde.edu.

Current employees may contact Kim Arnold (arnold@ccboe.org) or Tanya Knight (tknight@ccboe.org) from the Human Resources Department with any questions regarding certification, renewal or reinstatement of an Alabama Professional Educators Certificate.

Recognizing a Higher Degree
Current employees requesting to have a higher degree recognized for pay purposes should request their institution to mail or email official college transcripts to the Human Resources Department.  A representative from the Human Resources Department will submit a Verification of Higher Degree form to the Alabama Department of Education Certification Office.  Once the State recognizes the higher degree, the Human Resources Department will submit the information for board approval.  If you have any questions or need more information, you may contact a representative from the Human Resources Department (256.734.2933).
