The Ohio Department of Education is pleased to announce the new Reinstatement License. This one-year, nonrenewable license is available for educators who have not yet completed their renewal requirements and have associate or professional licenses that have lapsed for at least one year. Educators may apply for a reinstatement license at the request of their employing Ohio school district and will be properly certified in the reinstatement licensure area while completing requirements to renew their expired associate or professional license. Please note that educators may only request a reinstatement license for the same subject(s) and grade level(s) as their expired associate or professional license. Educators must work with their local professional development committees to complete renewal requirements for their lapsed associate or professional licenses.
Please see the Department’s Reinstatement License webpage for additional information. The webpage includes a licensure checklist, which may be downloaded and printed, and the requirements for educators to renew their lapsed associate or professional licenses.
