Renew Your License

2020 Educator License Renewals 

Email notice was sent January 7, 2020, to all educators whose licenses expire 6/30/2020. At that time, renewal applications were opened for completion. In 2020 there are 5,267 educators renewing their licenses, this number is twice as large as years past. In order to streamline the process and have your renewal approved timely, please do the following: enter and submit your Professional Learning documentation to your Local Standards Board (L/RSB). This step is crucial to the process, your L/RSB needs to approve your PL, before the AOE can review the application. Educators employed in a Vermont school will renew through their Local/Regional Standards Board. Also important is to login to the system: Vermont Online Licensing System for Educators; open your profile and update your employer and e-mail address. Add VT-AOE-Message@vermont.gov to your list of trusted contacts as notification regarding your application will be sent from this address. This email address is not monitored.
