Teacher Relicensing

How to Renew Instructional and Administrative Licenses 

You should not apply for your renewal more than 45 days prior to the expiration date. The date of your renewal will be the date we receive payment for the license, and the expiration date will correspond.  Applying for a renewal far in advance of your expiration date is unnecessary and will result in loss of the period of validity between the date you pay for your renewal and your actual expiration date. 

Effective July 1, 2012, applicants for initial licensure of any type and applicants for all renewals must show proof of valid CPR/AED/Heimlich certification. For applications submitted and paid in LVIS on or before June 30, 2012, the current requirement will be honored even though the license may not be processed by licensing advisors or OELD staff until July 1, 2012, or after.
