TEACH Online Services

Due to an overwhelming number of calls and e-mails related to educator certification, unfortunately, The Office of Teaching Initiatives is experiencing substantial delays in the processing of applications at this time. You can keep watch over the progress of your application by monitoring your TEACH online services account.  This can be done by logging in to your TEACH account and viewing your Account Information page.  From your Account Information page, you will be able to check on the status of a pending application and see when documents you have submitted have been received and entered, into your Account.  You will want to take note of the application status, as noted on your Account Information page.  Applications are evaluated in the order in which they enter “ready for review” status
