SPRING OR SUMMER TRAFFIC ED COURSE COMING UP? MAKE SURE YOU'RE APPROVED!

tedrs-logo.pngMost fall courses have ended and spring courses are starting up. If you operate a late spring or summer program, make sure your TE01 District Application is submitted to the OPI for approval. The 2018 school year ends June 30, 2018. Summer courses that will end in July or August 2018 should be entered in the 2019 school year. 

And if you are traffic education teacher and your educator license needs to be renewed this year, you likely need to renew your approval to teach traffic education. The OPI now has an easy-to-submit online TE05 form. Visit the Driver Educator page to learn more.
