Complete all 3 pages of the PSC application in black ink with specific attention given to educational background.

The PSC will not process your application without an official transcript.

Once you are an employee of the Lumpkin County School District (including new hires), the $20 fee will be exempted for you on initial certification transactions.

The GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) replaced the Praxis II exams on September 1, 2006.  Information about the GACE tests can be found at

Your certificate or letter of requirement(s) will be sent electronically from the PSC and a copy forwarded to the Lumpkin County School District for your personnel file.  All certified educators (teachers, paraprofessionals and support) must have a MyPSC account.  Website:  to create your account.

It is critical that you complete your certification requirements at the earliest opportunity.


Renewal for current Lumpkin County School District Employees

Applications for renewal of certifications will be accepted in January of the year of expiration.

The State of Georgia mandates that professional teaching certificates be renewed every five years with either 10 professional development units (PLUs) or six-semester hours of college credit or a combination of the two. These credits must be accrued during the validity period of the certificate to be renewed. For example, if your certificate is valid July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2016, credits must have been earned between those dates to count toward certificate renewal.

Applications for renewal of certifications will be accepted in January of the year of expiration.
