    Your criminal background report will be mailed back to our office.

◄SUBSTITUTE LICENSE

If you need to obtain a substitute teachers license, these are now obtained on-line through the DOE website. The link you need to go to is: https://license.doe.in.gov . You will first need to create a profile. Be sure to indicate Northwest Allen as the accepting school corporation. You should then receive an e-mail confirmation which you will need to click on the link to continue the process. There is a $15.00 fee for your license. After you have completed the first portion of this process the state will notify me that there is an application out there to be accepted. We must have your criminal background back before we can approve your sub license. After we have accepted the application the DOE will notify you that it is ok for you to complete your application. When everything is complete you will be able to print your own license. Please attach a copy of your license to the substitute application and return to the Central Office.

◄NORTHWEST APPLICATION

The application must be returned to the Northwest Allen County Schools Administration Office within 2 weeks upon having your criminal background completed. Make sure a copy of either an Indiana teaching license or substitute license is attached.
