Teacher & Administrator Licenses/Renewals
All Minnesota charter school and authorizing institution personnel can access the services of the Association's Relicensure Committee.
Charter School TeachersAll 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 their professional license according to state rules and submit their renewal hours to a relicensure committee for approval. The Committee only reviews and approves hours for Tier 3 and Tier 4 licenses.
Charter School AdministratorsMinnesota charter school administrators are not required to hold an administrative license. However, an individual with an administrator license is responsible for renew their professional license every five years with clock hours pre-approved by the Minnesota Board of School Administrators.
