Teacher Relicensure

The Relicensure Committee is a volunteer committee that:

  • examines the educational experience documentation of teachers
  • verifies that the experiences are germane to the licensure area
  • determines that the teacher is eligible for license renewal
  • enters informational data into the MDE Licensing system
  • and upholds the Board of Teaching Laws.

The committee serves as an informational agent on licensure for the professional staff.
