Online Applications Process
The RENEWAL process is now an ONLINE APPLICATION PROCESS. Any person who has held an emergency substitute license since the 1999-2000 school year should use the online application process to obtain an emergency substitute license for the school year. Use the following website: www.ksde.org. Choose "Educators" and then "Licensure". There is an "Applications" link under licensure information in the orange section along the right hand side of the page.
(direct web link is http://www.ksde.org/Default.aspx?tabid=1950)
On the applications page, choose the link to Form 8 - Renewal of Emergency Substitute license. Step-by-step instructions for completing the online application process are provided. This is a one step process that can be done in just a few minutes. Applicants will be given the option to pay for the license with an electronic check or credit card OR with a paper check or money order. There is a $3.00 fee charged for an electronic payment by the pay system.
The process of applying for the INITIAL emergency substitute license remains the same. A paper application form can be downloaded and printed from the website, following the same links. Fingerprint card, official transcripts and the application form and fee are required for an initial emergency substitute license.
