Teacher Licensure

Regional Offices of Education issue, register and monitor teacher and administrator licenses. Regional Offices of Education also provide assistance to educators seeking a new license, new endorsement or to renew current credentials.

Renewal and Registration Reminders
If you hold a Professional Educator License or Educator License with Stipulations endorsed for Career and Technical Educator and your renewal cycle expires on June 30, 2018, you must enter your Professional Development (PD) hours no later than August 31, 2018, and pay the applicable registration fee. Your license must be renewed before you can work in the classroom.

 If your PD is not entered, your license will lapse on September 1, 2018, and be invalid for employment. A $500 penalty fee or completion of nine semester hours of specific coursework will be required to reinstate your license. You must register your license after you have renewed it. Failure to register your license before January 1 will cause your license to lapse.
