License renewal 


​From the DOE: Any teacher who holds a license that will expire on August 31, 2016, must submit an application for renewal or advancement to the Office of Educator Licensing and Preparation on or before August 31.


As of August 1, all licensure renewal and advancement transactions must occur through TNCompass (here). The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) no longer accepts paper applications for renewals or advancements of Tennessee licenses. If the Office of Educator Licensing and Preparation does not receive the application by August 31, the license will become inactive. To reactivate an inactive license, an educator must submit passing scores on required content assessments that are no more than five years old. 


We encourage teachers to be mindful of these deadlines and changes. Please click here to access the licensure website. Please click here to create an account in TNCompass. Non-educators who need access to teacher licensing information may access TDOE’s public-access educator licensure information site herePlease share this information with teachers!
