Interstate Teacher Mobility Compact

Nebraska is a member of the Interstate Teacher Mobility Compact.

State Statute 79-1505: The purpose of this Compact is to facilitate the mobility of Teachers across the Member States, with the goal of supporting Teachers through a new pathway to licensure. Through this Compact, the Member States seek to establish a collective regulatory framework that expedites and enhances the ability of Teachers to move across State lines.

Upon the receipt of an application for licensure by a Teacher holding an Unencumbered Eligible License, Nebraska shall determine which of the Nebraska’s Eligible Licenses the Teacher is qualified to hold and shall grant such a license or licenses to the applicant. “Unencumbered License” means a current, valid authorization issued by a Member State’s Licensing Authority allowing an individual to serve as a Teacher in P-12 public educational settings. An Unencumbered License is not a restricted, probationary, provisional, substitute, or temporary credential.
