When do I need to send a transcript?
All documents must be turned in prior to September 10th of the current school year or your first duty day (whichever occurs later), as mandated by Article V, Section A, Paragraph 3 of the BOE/UTW Teacher Agreement
Only official transcripts may be accepted.
- Official paper transcripts may be sent via USPS to Human Resources at 903 S. Edgemoor, Wichita, KS 67218
- Official electronic transcripts also accepted, but only when sent directly from the university or clearinghouse to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you hold only a Bachelor’s degree, a minimum of 4 college credit hours (worth 80 PD points) earned during the term of your current license and recorded in My Learning Plan (as college credit request) are required, as well as an additional 80 Professional Development points, for a total of 160 points.
Both Wichita Public Schools AND the Kansas Department of Education (KSDE) will require an official transcript.
- If you have an official paper transcript sent to WPS with your renewal documents, WPS can use the transcript for their purposes and then send the same one on to the state.
- If you instead choose to send official electronic transcripts, one will need to be sent to WPS (email@example.com) and another to KSDE (firstname.lastname@example.org).
