Unable to pass required MTLE tests?

The Minnesota Department of Education Board adopted a resolution that waives the requirements for an offer of employment and verification that a fully licensed teacher is not available. Under the Board’s resolution, a candidate can apply for a one-year limited license if they meet the following criteria:

Limited licenses are issued beginning on August 1 of each year and applications are available through our online application process at: http://education.state.mn.us/MDE/EdExc/Licen/index.html   

Substitute teaching license

If you complete a teacher preparation program with student teaching, you can apply for a 5 year substitute teaching license. If you hold a bachelor's in non education then first you need to find a district to give you a verbal agreement that they will sign part of your application because they are in hardship and need you for a sub. You would contact the MN Dept. of Education office on how to apply online. Be sure you find a district to sign before you apply and pay online because if you apply first and can't find a district then your fee will be forfeited.
