Educator Certification Information
Educators are responsible for obtaining their certificates and keeping them up to date. All Michigan certificates expire on June 30 of a given year. The Michigan Department of Education does not notify teachers regarding expiring certificates. Teachers must know the validity period of their certificates and meet the necessary renewal requirements before the expiration date. Teachers may lose their positions or tenure if a teaching certificate expires.
The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) believes that all students should have access to high quality teachers. The Welcome Back Proud Michigan Educator (PME) campaign is designed to help teachers return to the classroom.
