    Re: Colorado Teaching License--Does it really take that long
    A

    I sent my license in sometime in August and the website says it was
    received on 8/24/10. I was originally told 12 weeks, then 16. Today it has
    been 19 weeks and still no update on the CDE website. They won't answer
    inquiries regarding a timeline of a license. My license expires in March.
    Glad I turned my stuff in 7 months early. Hope I hear something before
    then!
