Pennsylvania Teacher Certification and Licensing
Welcome to the teacher certification portion of the BCIU #22 website.Often times we have questions that we don’t have time to spend searching through through the maze of answers on the Pennsylvania Department of Education website depending on how you worded your question. This portion ofthe HR website was developed in an effort to assist you with the needswe are most often faced.

Everything is now being entered, approved and tracked in the Teacher Information Management System (TIMS) allows the exchange of data among several existing applications currently used by PDE to collect and manage data related to professional educators.
