License Renewal
Steps to Renewing an ODE License

If your license will expire in June of next year, you may want to create a SAFE account and finalize your list of professional development, but please wait until after January 1 to submit your renewal application so that the effective date will be accurate.  Thank you.

1.  Create a SAFE account on the ODE website.  You will need a driver's license or other acceptable ID (see SAFE Help on the SAFE portal page), the last four digits of your social security number, birth date, and email address. 

If you need specific directions, please click on "SAFE Sign Up Help" on the SAFE portal page.

2. Log in to your SAFE account and use CORE to access your credentials.  View the "ODE-CORE Online Application Training Part 3:  My Credentials" for step-by-step renewal application directions.

Complete the renewal application online.  APPLYING ONLINE IS THE ONLY OPTION.  Be prepared to pay for the license with a credit or debit card.

When you are prompted to search for an e-signer, search for "Martins Ferry LPDC" or IRN 013571.

3.  Access the LPDC Google Classroom and submit your Professional Development Record and IPDP through the Classroom.  Instructions for Accessing Google Classroom can be found HERE

4.  If you need to update your FBI/BCI background check, see Rhonda in the administration office.  

NEW THIS YEAR:  Paper licenses are no longer sent via US Mail.  Licenses can be printed through individual SAFE accounts and by the e-signer only.
