About Clock Hours
Clock hours are required for most teachers, administrators and ESE certificate holders in Washington State. Clock hours may be earned for salary placement and may also be required to maintain certification. ESD 112 is an approved clock hour provider in Washington State. If professional development is offered by an outside agency, it is important to check that the agency is approved by OSPI to provide clock hours in Washington. If not, the professional development hours may not be used for certificate maintenance or salary purposes. Certificates of completion are not valid forms of clock hour documentation. If your district is a member of the ESD 112 Clock Hour Coop, you may submit your clock hour in-service form from an outside provider to us and we will manually add the clock hours to your pdEnroller transcript. Outside providers do not use pdEnroller so they will not issue a claim code.

In the ESD 112 region, we have many districts that are members of our Clock Hour Cooperative and participants from these districts do not pay for clock hours. Click here for a list of member districts.
The clock hour process is entirely online. ESD 112 maintains all required clock hour records for seven years.
