2014 Renewal Applications

2014 renewal applications are being processed in date order considering the date the Agency receives the application. Renewal applications were due to the Agency by June 30, 2014. Processing will take several weeks and is expected to continue through August 2014. Educators renewing their license(s) in 2014 should be ‘held harmless’ considering verification of licensure for employment. See this Memo for more details.

If your 2014 Renewal application has been submitted and you have received the orange card receipt in the mail, please refrain from calling the licensing office. Thank you for your patience.

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.


The Vermont Agency of Education's Licensing Office administers rules and procedures. These procedures have been established to evaluate the credentials of prospective educators and to ensure that they meet specified preparation standards and requirements. Rules and procedures are established by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators (VSBPE). Vermont's rules governing educator preparation and licensing require professional employees of all public elementary, middle and secondary schools to hold state licensure appropriate for their assignment(s).

The Licensing Office receives its highest volume of requests for application materials and other information from May to October. Although every attempt is made to answer all requests as quickly as possible, during this time, requests received by e-mail often receive the quickest response.
