MT Licenses Have a New Look! 

The OPI will no longer be mailing licenses to educators. Once an application is complete and approved in the TMT system, an educator will be able to print the license instantly! This is the license that will need to get registered with county superintendents. They are aware of the change and know what the new license looks like!

 

What Is My Application Status?

This is the projected schedule for licensure evaluation. Please review the date your application was submitted and review the schedule.

 


INFORMATION FOR DISTRICTS: 

Emergency Authorization of Employment applications will now be completed through the TeachMontana system.
