TEACHING and ADMINISTRATOR LICENSES & RENEWALS
- CHARTER SCHOOL TEACHERS:
All teachers must have a valid, current Minnesota license in order to teach in a Minnesota charter school. Every teacher is responsible to maintain and renew his/her professional license according to state rules and submit their renewal hours to a relicensure committee for approval.
- CHARTER SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS:
MN charter school administrators are not required to hold an administrative license. However, an individual with an administrator license is responsible for renew her/his professional license every five years with clock hours pre-approved by the MN Board of School Administrators.
The Association's Relicensure Committee handles renewals for Tier 3 and Tier 4 Educator and Administrator Licenses.
Personnel of all MN charter schools and authorizing institutions can access the services of the Association's Relicensure Committee.
