State Budget Licensure Changes

Important NoticeEducators who hold a Professional or Master Educator license that was supposed to expire on June 30, 2018, DO NOT NEED TO APPLY to renew their license with credits or a PDP.  The state budget has removed the expiration dates from these licenses, and we are working to have license lookup reflect that.

Please visit the Latest Licensing News blog for information on the state budget's impact on licensure. All available information has been posted to the Latest Licensing News blog. Please Note: the first post relating to the new license rules was written September 22nd.
 

The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families is responsible for licensing day cares and day care staff. Please see https://dcf.wisconsin.gov/cclicensing for more information. The one exception is for 4K teachers who are teaching at a community-based 4K program in partnership with a public school district. These teachers must hold an Early Childhood or PK teacher license.
