At DPI we are consistently looking to help our Wisconsin Educators. We have created a few new web tools that will support educators who hold Lifetime licenses determine if and when they will need to complete the background check application to keep their Life or Lifetime license active.
Video - If you are unclear about whether or not you need to submit a background check application to keep your Life or Lifetime license valid, please take a few moments to view a short video. It will describe one way an educator can determine if they need to submit a background check application by June 30, 2019.
Contact Us Form - Another tool that you can use is the Contact Educator Licensing webform. By entering your entity number into that form, you will be provided with your “LAST BACKGROUNDCHECK DATE” and told if “2019 APPLICATION REQUIRED.”
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
