Currently we are experiencing an extremely high volume of inquiries. Before contacting the Licensing Office, please read the following messages.
2014 Renewal Applications
The Office of Educator Licensing will be closing pending 2014 renewal applications at 4:30 p.m., August 15, 2014. If your application remains incomplete after August 15, 2014, it will lapse. To be eligible to teach the 2014 -2015 school year, you will need to reinstate your license.
Educators renewing their license(s) in 2014 should be ‘held harmless’ considering verification of licensure for employment. See this Memo for more details.

Online Access to Educator Credentials
The Licensing Office would like to inform Superintendents and other stakeholders that anyone can visit the Vermont Online Licensing System for Educators and check on an educator’s current credentials. View this memo for the link and instructions.
Attention educators using the Vermont Online Licensing System for Educators! If you have completed the Criminal Background Check (CRC) through a paper application process, please, do not repeat the CRC in the online licensing system. The CRC is completed one time for the Vermont Agency of Education. Multiple submissions will create problems for licensing specialists. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
