The recently passed 2017 – 2019 Wisconsin state budget contains major changes to licensure rules. We are working to review the changes and how this will affect licenses going forward. Please continue to monitor our Latest Licensing News blog for updates on changes in law. You can read about these changes in Wisconsin Legislature Act 59. Specific licensure language can be found on pages 298-302 of Act 59.
The Teacher Education, Professional Development and Licensing team will be working on making license changes as directed by this budget. Educators will not need to complete any steps to obtain the new license for which they are eligible.
