Amends GS 115C-270.30 (Teacher License renewal) to permit teachers to count hours spent attending mandatory trainings toward the continuing education hours required for renewal of their teaching license so long as the training program is required as a condition of employment and all other continuing education requirements for renewal are met. Also amends this section to prohibit the State Board of Education (SBE) from requiring continuing education hours solely related to digital teaching/learning, but to allow the SBE to require up to 2 continuing education hours that have a digital teaching/learning component.
