Renewing your teaching license is part of your professional responsibility. For a quick look at your options, visit the  KSDE Teacher Education and Licensure website. How you achieved your initial certification/licensure and what kind of licensure you want in the future may determine the qualifications you must meet to keep your license current.  The requirements for renewal are printed at the bottom of your current certificate/license.

Many school districts will automatically notify teachers when it is time to renew. While this is a convenience to you, it is not required of the school district. It is your duty as a professional to keep your certificate/license current and it is a violation of Kansas law for you to be paid unless your certificate/license is curren

One of  the benefits of KNEA membership is expert advice on school law and teacher licensure. If you have questions or concerns, contact your UniServ Director.
