Licensing and Evaluation

License Renewal Resources

The recently passed 2017 – 2019 Wisconsin state budget contains major changes to licensure rules.  DPI is working to review the changes and how this will affect licenses going forward.  Please review DPI’s Latest Licensing News blog for updates on changes in law.    You can read about these changes in Wisconsin Legislature Act 59.  Specific licensure language can be found on pages 298-302 of Act 59. 

The Teacher Education, Professional Development and Licensing team at DPI is working on making license changes as directed by this budget.  Educators will not need to complete any steps to obtain the new license for which they are eligible.
