The PWCS Office of Certification provides guidance to licensed staff on all licensure processes and salary upgrades. Licensure Specialists work directly with the Virginia Department of Education on your behalf for all licensure related requests. As the official licensing agency, the Virginia Department of Education makes the final determination in all licensure matters based on current licensure regulations and guidelines.
License holders should follow the instructions for each licensure request and send a complete licensure packet to the assigned licensure specialist in the PWCS Office of Certification as follows:
Last Names A through L - Mindy Abbott, PWCS Office of Certification
Last Names M through Z - Brock Relyea, PWCS Office of Certification
Licensed staff of PWCS should not send licensure documents directly to the Virginia Department of Education. All licensure requests should be processed by a PWCS licensure specialist.
