MDE Seeking Former Educators
Are you a former Michigan educator with expired credentials? If so, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is launching a campaign to get former educators back in the classroom by reducing or eliminating professional recertification requirements. The campaign is part of a strategic effort to increase the number of certified educators in areas of shortage. This could include a local education agency (LEA), both traditional public school districts and public school academies. More information about the Welcome Back Proud Michigan Educator program can be found on the MDE website.
