Teacher Licensure in North Carolina. CoNCepts
Grovenstein, Elizabeth
Hunt Institute
Every state regulates, through some method of teacher certification, the qualifications of teachers. North Carolina's state teacher licensure system requires any person employed by a local education agency (LEA) in a professional educator position to hold a professional educator's license. The licensure system used by the NC Department of Public Instruction (NC DPI) has been updated to make the current licensure process more efficient. This issue of "CoNCepts" begins by providing background information on licensure and describes how the authority for teacher licensure in North Carolina is governed. Next, tables are provided laying out the process for educators entering North Carolina to achieve initial and continuing licensure. The issue concludes with a brief description of NC DPI's new online licensure system that enables the entire licensure process to be automated.
