The grace period for renewing professional educator licenses and educator licenses with stipulations endorsed for career and technical educator ends Aug. 31. All licenses with a July 1, 2017, renewal date must be renewed and registered by Aug. 31 or they will lapse and be invalid for employment.
Educators who wish to reinstate a lapsed license must either pay a $500 penalty fee or complete nine semester hours of endorsement-related coursework.
