Districts: EAE's for the 2023-24SY are now being accepted through March 29, 2024. Here are some useful links regarding the EAE process in TeachMT:


Please review 10.57.107 and note that it states "District Administrators have exhausted all possibilities for hiring a licensed teacher and have advertised the position at least statewide far enough in advance."

*Since EAEs are issued to a school district, the school district is responsible for making the application payments for their EAEs.

MT Licenses Have a New Look! 

The OPI is no longer mailing licenses to educators. Once an application is complete and approved in the TMT system, an educator is able to print their license instantly! If you are currently employed by a Montana school district, this is the license you need to register with your local county superintendent. They are aware of the change and know what the new license looks like!
