Pupil Services License

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.
 

Under Wis. Admin. Code PI 34, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction issues the following pupil services licenses for specific developmental levels:

Licenses Developmental Level
School Counselor EC-A
School Nurse EC-A
School Psychologist EC-A
School Social Worker EC-A

 

A minimum of master’s degree or the equivalent is required for School Counselor and School Social Worker licenses. School Psychologist license requires a specialist degree or equivalent.

Licenses Issued Prior to July 2004

Five-year pupil services licenses that were issued before Wis. Admin. Code PI 34 took effect in 2004 might have been issued for a position subject and/or grade level that are not listed above. Upon application for renewal, these 5-year pupil services licenses will be renewed as a Professional Educator License.  In some cases, the position and/or grade level will remain as they were.
