What are SCECHS?

Michigan Department of Education: State Continuing Education Clock
Hours (SCECH) Overview

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH) are hours earned by attending professional development activities provided by SCECH Sponsors and approved by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). These hours can be used for renewal and progression of certificates and licenses issued by MDE.

Effective July 1, 2020 - New District Provided Professional Development (DPPD) Reporting Process

Per the Michigan Department of Education:

Effective July 1, 2020, when districts choose to allow DPPD to be used for recertification, they must enter it into the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS) as State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs). This process replaces individual educator entry and the requirement for districts to review and sign each educator’s individual DPPD form.
