At DPI we are consistently looking to help our Wisconsin Educators. We have added additional functionality to License Lookup to show the Last Background Check Submitted to DPI.
You may search License Lookup using your name or entity number. The Last Background Check Submitted field will display the year in which the most recent background check was submitted to DPI. If there is no data in the Last Background Check Submitted field and you have a valid Lifetime license, a background check is required by June 30, 2019 to maintain this Lifetime license.
Wis. Admin Code s. PI 34.041 (4) requires educators who hold a valid Lifetime license to submit a request to the department to have a new background check conducted once every five years. Any complete application will update the background check date.
If you determine that you do need to submit a background check application, directions for the application can be found here: https://dpi.wi.gov/tepdl/elo/lifetime/lifetime-background-check
