Educators who have an expired teaching license can still be employed if the hiring school district is willing to request a validated license for them. A validated license is issued for 3 years to allow the educator time to complete the required 8 renewal credits to renew the license. The eight renewal credits must be earned by the end of the 3-year license.
A validated license must be requested by a school system. The fee to request a validated license is $60 and can only be paid by VISA or MasterCard. The fee is non-refundable.
