Renew Your License

Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, the Vermont Agency of Education's Licensing Office will be teleworking for the foreseeable future.

  • For inquiries regarding pending 2020 licensing applications, please check the first option in your online menu – “Pending Online Applications”—for the application status.
  • For questions regarding application types, please begin with resources on the AOE licensing webpage, including the tutorials, FAQs, and flowcharts found here.
  • For pending license applications requiring fingerprinted supported Criminal Record Checks, the Licensing Office WILL NOT enforce the 15 days requirement to upload a fingerprint receipt and will keep such applications open until further notice.
  • For educators not served by a Local or Regional Standards Board, continue to submit renewal, reinstatement, and retired educator applications directly to the Licensing Office.

2020 Educator License Renewals 

 

Educator License Expiration Dates Extended Due to COVID-19
Due to action taken by the Vermont Standards Board for Professional Educators, the life of all educator licenses scheduled to expire on June 30, 2020, has been extended to 90 days after the end of the governor’s state of emergency declaration. Currently, that declaration runs through June 15, 2020, meaning that September 15, 2020, is the earliest that licenses will expire. Please note that professional learning must be approved by your Local or Regional Standards Board before submission for renewal. Please reach out to your L/RSB as soon as possible to ensure sufficient opportunity for them to review your professional learning. The licensing team will keep educators updated on expiration dates as we have more certainty. If you have any questions, please contact Patrick Halladay at patrick.halladay@vermont.gov.

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: ; open your profile and update your employer and e-mail address. Add VT-AOE-Message@vermont.gov千亿体育官网 to your list of trusted contacts as notification regarding your application will be sent from this address. This email address is not monitored.
