    General Information about In-Service Credit

    Who Can Receive Credit?

    • WCSD individuals certified by the State of Nevada who are currently under contract and actively teaching in the Washoe County School District;
    • Certified employees from neighboring school districts; and
    • Current WCSD substitutes

    How is In-Service Credit Used? 

    • For WCSD employees, in-service credit may be applied toward advancement on the salary schedule as specified in the Negotiated Agreement with the Washoe County Teachers Association. For salary purposes, in-service credit shall apply as either undergraduate credit or graduate credit. It is the participant's responsibility to take the In-service Certificate of Credit to Human Resources for salary movement.
    • Additionally, in-service credit may be used to renew Nevada teacher/administrator licenses when specific graduate course work is not required. In-service classes with a W, WA, WCSD, or SDE- in the numbers have been approved by the State Department of Education and are acceptable for recertification.

    How Is the Amount of In-Service Credit Determined for Each Course?

    • Only non-contract hours spent in professional learning may count for in-service credit.
    • Each half credit represents 7.5 hours.  (15 hours = 1.0 credit; 30 hours = 2 credits; etc.)
    • Lunches and breaks do not count as qualifying time for in-service credit.
    • In-service credit cannot be earned if a stipend is paid.
