Renewing a Master Educator License

The Master Educator license can be renewed as another 10-year Master Educator license based on:

The Master Educator license can be renewed as 5-year Professional Educator license based on:

  • Completion of an NBPTS process, regardless if the educator receives the NBPTS certification, or
  • Completion of WMEAP, regardless if the educator receives the resulting Master Educator license, or
  • Completion of Wisconsin license renewal requirements:
    • Educators who receive their license based on completing the program after August 31, 2004 must complete a Professional Development Plan (PDP) in order to renew their Professional Educator license.
    • Educators who receive their license based on completing the program before August 31, 2004 can complete either 6 semester credits or a PDP in order to renew their Professional Educator license.

If you are renewing your Professional Educator license based on completion on NBPTS process (no NBPTS certificate), you must attach the score report with the application. If you completed the NBPTS process the same year that you are renewing your license, you may not receive your NBPTS score report in time for the renewal application. Therefore, you may apply for a 1-year non-renewable extension of your Professional Educator licenses. You can apply for renewal of your Professional Educator licenses as 5-year licenses starting the following school year.
