NEW OUT-OF-STATE PROFESSIONAL-LEVEL LICENSURE GUIDANCE
Applications for initial educator licensure, submitted on or after July 1, 2021, will be evaluated under the new licensure requirements (in accordance with the passage of Section 1 of Chapter 125 of the Public Acts of 2021, which amends TCA 49-5-108(c)).
Educators holding a professional-level license in a state other than Tennessee will receive a Tennessee Professional 6-Year license (professional teacher license, professional occupational teacher license, or professional school services personnel license), provided the professional license from another state is equivalent to Tennessee’s Professional license. The Professional 6-Year license is a full, professional-level license.
