Emergency License Info:
***Bilingual Ed is a shortage area for MMSD. We may consider candidates who hold the minimum of a Bachelor's degree, if the candidate is willing to pursue the full certification & license required for the position. The district does not provide financial support for the continued education that is required to achieve the certification. The district does not select or endorse any particular certification program that leads to the required Wisconsin teaching license.
A candidate must be hired by a school district in order to apply for an emergency permit or license (also known as a ?One-Year License with Stipulations?) with the Department of Public Instruction. DPI will not issue this type of license without a school district?s endorsement.
In all cases, the district must first consider applicants who are fully licensed to teach bilingual education before considering applicants who are not yet license.
