MN Teacher & Administrative License Renewal
- CHARTER SCHOOL TEACHERS:
All teachers must have a valid, current license in order to teach in a Minnesota charter school. Minnesota teachers need to maintain and renew their professional licensure every five years through the MN Department of Education.
Throughout each five-year licensure cycle, teachers are required to compile professional development activities to meet state requirements and then submit them to a local continuing education/relicensure committee for approval.
- CHARTER SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS:
Charter school administrators are not required to hold a valid administrative license by law; those that have a license, however, need to maintain and renew their professional licensure every five years through pre-approved hours from the MN Board of School Administrators that are reported through a local designated administrator representative.
One of the benefits MACS offers to its member schools and authorizing institutions is access to the MACS Relicensure Committee. This committee, composed of volunteers from the member charter school community, reviews and endorses relicensure requests from current and retired MACS member charter school educators.
Via the resources below, current MACS member school staff can learn more about the license renewal process and requirements, how to submit a file to the MACS Relicensure Committee, and when our committee reviews files.
