Teachers and administrators who hold a valid license in good standing from another state, have at least one year of experience under that license, and have an offer of employment from a school in Wisconsin can now apply through our License Based on Reciprocity Pathway. Applicants must submit a PI-1622-LICOOS form signed by the employing district with their application in ELO. Directions for applying can be found at http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/licensing/elo-reciprocity.
Please note that educators licensed under this pathway are not necessarily considered "Highly Qualified" for the purposes of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Wisconsin's definition of HQ includes passing required content tests (e.g., Praxis II, Wisconsin Foundations of Reading Test), which educators are not required to pass for this pathway. For more information on "Highly Qualified", please see http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/programs/-highly-qualified-teachers.
