The documentation you can use to verify your teacher status depends upon the type of school employee you are:
- Classroom Teachers can use a state issued teacher certification, a teacher ID card, a paystub, an offer letter or contract, or for private schools a verification letter from your School Administration (must be on official school letterhead and it must be signed by an administrator)
Important - All documents submitted for verification purposes must contain your full name and clearly show your occupational title as a Classroom Teacher, Instructor, Professor, or Faculty.
- Principals & Assistant Principals can use a state issued certification, an ID card that clearly shows your occupation as a Principal or Assistant Principal, a paystub, or an offer letter or contract.
- Administrators can use a state issued certification, a School Staff ID card, a paystub, an offer letter or contract, or for private schools a verification letter from your School Administration (must be on official letterhead and it must be signed by an administrator other than themselves).
NOTE: ALL documents submitted must show employment for the current school year.
NOTE: The document you upload must reflect the same name that you are entering during the verification process. If you do not have documentation with your current name (or are only able to pass our identity check using your previous name), we will need to see documentation that shows your name change (Ex: marriage certificate, legal name change documentation, etc.), in additional to your affiliation document. You will need to combine both of these documents into one file to upload for verification.
