Educator Licensure 

A primary service of the Regional Office of Education is to assist applicants with teacher licensure. We stay current with changing regulations, laws, and policies in teacher licensure and act as a liaison between the Regional Office of Education and the State Teacher Licensure Board for applicants, school districts, and other interested parties.
