Hawaii Teacher Standards Board Enhances Online Licensing Application
HONOLULU -- January 7, 2013
A release of a new version of Hawaii Teacher Standards Board’s online
application was deployed on November 5, 2012. The new version includes teacher
applications for a Provisional license and the ability of current licensees to
add teaching fields to their license. In addition, licensees who have a
Provisional license may now apply for Standard license online and all
licensees may save and print a PDF of their online application upon submitting
it to HTSB. The web address is http://m.hi.gov/htsb.
Previously, the online application permitted licensees to renew standard
license applications only. Other license types were available for application
in the paper form only.
This application was created in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium
(the eHawaii.gov State portal and official website for the State of Hawaii).
In 1995 the State Legislature created the independent Hawaii Teacher Standards
Board (HTSB) to set licensing standards for Hawaii public school teachers,
school librarians and school counselors. Professional Educators must meet
these standards in order to qualify for a Hawaii license. The mission is to
collaboratively set high teacher licensing and credentialing standards to:
provide every child with qualified teachers, promote professionalism and
teaching excellence, build public confidence in the teaching profession, and
provide more accountability to the public.
