Virtual Certificate Information
Virtual Certificates for Educators
The representation of a person’s certificate status as maintained on the agency’s website is considered to be the official record of educator certification. This electronic representation of the certificate satisfies Section 21.053(a) of the Texas Education Code, which requires individuals to present their certificate prior to employment by a school district. TEA no longer mails paper certificates. A printer-friendly frameable version will be available to the educator once the certificate is posted online. To print a copy, login to your account and select the "View Certificates" link from menu on the left-hand side.
