Renewing License

The following information is for licensed teachers employed by Hastings Public Schools and district residents who hold a Minnesota teaching license and are not employed by another school district. If you belong to either of these groups, you may choose to utilize the District 200 Relicensure Committee as the body approving activities for credit toward renewal of your teaching license and/or obtaining the signature needed on the state relicensure form verifying that you have met the requirements for relicensure of a Minnesota teaching license. Out of district requests for relicensure may be sent to the chairperson for review and approval at scheduled committee meetings.

Our Relicensure Committee supports you in the re-licensure process, however, it is your responsibility to make sure your transcript is accurate.

Note: All employees of District 200 have a PD Express account, therefore, this committee will not accept paper copies of clock hours for District 200 teachers.

Brenda Voge (Chair) – Pinecrest Christine Baum – High School

Tatum Mahlen – High School 

Jim Hanson - Middle School

  2. Bring your PD Express transcript to your building relicensure committee member
  3. Your transcript will be reviewed & approved by the committee at one of their scheduled meetings
  4. The committee will upload your approved 125 CEU hours to the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB)

  6. PELSB will send an email to confirm when your license renewal is complete
