Rescission of a License

A license may be rescinded if a license is issued in error.  Possible causes for rescission include:
  • Fraud or misrepresentation of information provided to the ADE for licensure
  • A determination that an out-of-state license is not in good standing

Reinstating an Expired License

An expired license may be reinstated by completing the requirements for renewal and providing documentation of the following professional development:

  • If expired for less than one year
  • If expired for one or more years

Reinstating a Suspended or Revoked License

When a license is suspended for disciplinary action, the educator must complete all conditions of the suspension. The PLSB or ADE will verify the completion of the suspension. The educator must submit an application for reinstatement.

A revoked license is not eligible for reinstatement in Arkansas.
