Current Announcements - Updated: July 2, 2020
Office Hours: The office’s hours will remain 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, but the office will be minimally staffed as most employees will conduct business from home. Consultants may be reached via phone or email during regular business hours. See our Contact Us page for more details. In-person visits to consultants are by appointment only.
Fingerprinting Services: The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners will remain open, however we have temporarily suspended all on-site fingerprinting services. We will continue to mail fingerprint packets upon request. As per the Governor's March 22 proclamation, we can temporarily issue a license without the fingerprint background check.
Extensions: As part of the Proclamation of Disaster Emergency in Iowa, Governor Reynolds has directed our agency to provide some professional licensing relief. If your license is set to expire this month during this disaster emergency and you are unable to apply to renew, you may contact any consultant in our office to request an extension. Contact Us
Online Application System: Our application system is entirely online, and we are still processing application requests.
Initial License Conversions: Since school districts are still providing optional or required instruction, administrators may sign off on applications to move from an initial license to the next license level after the last day of school (not before).
BoEE Has Moved! We are no longer located in the Grimes State Office Building. See our Contact Us page for more details.
