Renewal Audits

Teachers are eligible for an audit up to one year from the date they actually renew. For example, if a teacher renewed their license on July 1, 2017, they are eligible for an audit through June 30, 2018.

If you are a Hawaiʻi Department of Education teacher and are selected for an audit, the DOE will verify that you had a effective teacher evaluation at the time of renewal.

If you are not a Hawaiʻi Department of Education teacher and are selected for an audit, the forms RA4010, to verify your experience, and RA5010, RA5010C or RA5010L, depending on whether you are a teacher, counselor or librarian, that you upload to your My Profile – Documents tab will be used for the audit. HTSB strongly suggests that you upload these documents at time of online renewal. If an individual selected for audit cannot provide documentation, adverse action could be taken on their license.
