Directions for ODE Online License Applications; Returning Sub Info
& Inactive Sub Info

ODE Online License Applications

ODE provides step-by-step credential application guides, listed on the right, for assistance in submitting your online license application with them, whether you need a NEW or a RENEW Substitute Teacher License. When applying, please enter Butler County ESC as the Superintendent's Signature. Districts no longer approve substitute licenses. 

NOTE: As of October 30, 2014, ODE is no longer mailing licenses! Once ODE has issued your license, you can log on to your ODE Safe Account and print off a PDF copy of your license. Make sure to send a copy of your current license over to Jeri Murray (WCESC) so your information can be updated!

As of February 27, 2015, ODE requires that you attach your official transcripts when you are applying online for your ODE license.

Also, if you have a current teaching license and are also considered HQT (Highly Qualified Teacher), please submit the proper forms, along with supporting documentation, with your teaching license! The link to the ODE HQT Toolkit is listed on the right.
