- Important Information for Educators Renewing Licenses in 2018
The State Board of Education is staggering the renewal periods for educators that have licenses that are up for renewal in 2018.
o Educators who hold a PEL and ELS-CTE license with an expiration of 6/30/2018 may renew beginning April 1.
o Educators who hold an ELS-PARA license with an expiration of 6/30/2018 may renew beginning April 15.
o Educators who hold a SUB license with an expiration of 6/30/2018 may renew beginning May 1.
There are over 200,000 educators have licenses up for renewal this year, compared to 60,000 in a normal year, so the staggered renewal cycle is designed to prevent the system from overloading due to increased user traffic.
The “renewal” hot link in educators’ action centers will not be activated until the dates identified above.
Professional development for this renewal cycle must be completed by Aug. 31, 2018, and all licenses eligible for renewal must be renewed by Aug. 31, 2018.
