Unique Educator Identifier

The activities grouped under this component include the collection and maintenance of specific data related to certification, assignments, and professional development. Covered are the processes and ability to assign, manage, and maintain a unique educator identifier at the state and/or local education agency level, and to validate educator licensing (which includes aligning to course assignments, recertification, and collection of professional development points). Activities may include the tracking of additional competencies and certifications (including alternate methods, recertification, suspensions, reciprocity, and transfers between states) that the educator holds.
