Eligible Employees will have 30 days from their license issue date to submit the following documentation for reimbursement:

  • Signed “Guidelines for Teaching Licensure Reimbursement” form (this document)
  • Copy of receipts for applicable licensure fees
  • Copy of the license
  • Copy of licensure requirement letter

** IMPORTANT Information **

  • Please allow up to 1 month for processing.
  • Reimbursements are made possible through a Federal Grant. When the funding for the school year is depleted, outstanding requests will be paid when the next funding allotment is received.
  • The employee agrees to repay to the district in full should the employee leave Hoke County Schools before the completion of a full academic year. This amount will be deducted from the employee’s final pay check.
