MDE has announced that in order to maintain the safety of MDE staff and to better serve education stakeholders, the Educator Licensure Call Center will reopen on an abbreviated schedule with a limited number of staff to respond to licensure needs. Beginning May 12, 2020, the Educator Licensure Call Center will be open every Tuesday and Thursday between the hours 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. until further notice. You may reach a licensure team member at 601-359-3483.
Due to the anticipated high volume of calls, MDE encourages educators to continue visit the Educator Licensure section of mdek12.org/covid19 and mdek12.org/licensure before calling the office or emailing questions to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Answers to most questions are addressed on those web pages.
