When an educator submits a complete and accurate renewal application by June 30th, Wis. Stat. 227.51 (2) provides that the educator’s existing license does not expire until the DPI completes the processing of the renewal application.
Due to the compressed window for renewal applications (March 31 - June 30) and it taking extra time for us to help educators apply in the new ELO system, we are running about a month behind where we were last year at this time in approving renewals. It is currently taking around 10 weeks.
If we need any additional documents, we will contact you.
To check the status of your application, please see the directions at http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/licensing/check-status.
