    Re: Renewal of an expired teaching license
    Peggy/TX

    Hi, Stacey,
    You need to go on-line at the Arkansas State Department of
    Education and download a copy of the certificate renewal
    application. It costs $100.00 to renew your certificate. You
    may also be asked to go be fingerprinted which is an extra $25-
    35. I tried to go on-line to view a copy of my expired
    Arkansas certificate but was defeated on that task.
    You are probably right in assuming that you might be given a
    provisional certificate, BUT some school districts may be
    willing to hire you if you let them know in your cover letter
    that your Arkansas certificate has expired. I have both a
    Texas and an Oklahoma certificate so decided to wait on
    renewing my Arkansas one unless a district decides to offer me
    a job.
    Good Luck! I for one am thrilled that you were able to stay
    home with your children for a few years. That's fabulous and
    your children will always remember.
