To assist you in applying for a Substitute Permit license, please follow the steps provided below:
COMPLETE the PI-1622 District Request for Short-Term Substitute Permit (available below).
GO TO the www.dpi.state.wi.us Under the Schools & Educators drop-down menu, scroll to Licenses and select Educator Licensing Online. Scroll to and click on the ! (exclamation point) for Substitute and Emergency licenses. At the next screen, scroll to “District-requested Short-term (3-year) Substitute Permit” and select the appropriate option.
FOLLOW the directions listed under Application Process.
Note: You will get redirected to the WAMS website because you need to create a WAMS account. Follow the instructions to register a new WAMS account. (Make note of your username and password.) After creating the account, return to the ELO website.
SCAN the PI-1622 and the transcripts documenting your Bachelor’s degree. Make sure the PDF files are less than 2 MB in size each and save the files so that they are readily available for uploading into ELO during the application process.
