Evaluator information for an Initial Administrator License. If you have an Initial Administrator License, you do not need to take an evaluator course to convert your license. If you have an Initial Administrator License and take an evaluator class, it will not count toward your first renewal of your Professional Administrator license. All classes must be taken during the term of the license being renewed. If your district requests that the administrative team take “Assessing Academic Rigor”, the holder of the Initial Administrator License may want to audit the class. An evaluator course taken for credit will be needed to renew the Professional Administrator license.
