Under Wis. Admin. Code PI 34, an educator who was issued a teaching license prior to July 1, 2004 may convert that license to a license in a related developmental level or subject area as defined in Wis. Admin. Code PI 34.
License conversion is only applicable to those who hold a Wisconsin teaching license that was issued prior to July 1, 2004. The following criteria apply:
- The license must be current (not expired).
- This option is only available for teaching licenses (not administrators or pupil services).
- Supplemental teaching licenses are not eligible.
License conversion is not applicable to applicants holding non-Wisconsin teaching license.
The process for license conversion includes submitting a portfolio to the Department of Public Instruction.
