School Staffing / TEAMS

Saturday, April 27, 2013, 11:16 am

The Montana State Educator Information System (MSEIS), the new educator licensure system which will be used in conjunction with TEAMS for accreditation, began a phased roll-out to a new online system in April.  While this implementation preempted three public services - the online initial licensure application, the online renewal application, and the “print your own duplicate license for free” option - licenses continue to be processed and paper applications are still being accepted.  All public services will be available again by May 3; we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  Future phases of this project will greatly improve OPI reporting capabilities, streamline OPI business processes and provide better record access to educators and school districts.

OPI is preparing to open the first two parts of the TEAMS system by the end of May 2013: the School Employee ID (SEID) generator and the Terms of Employment (TOE) data collection.  In order to access TEAMS, users must be assigned rights by the district’s Authorized Representative via the TEAMS Security Form.  OPI staff are currently contacting Authorized Representatives by email if they have not yet established access rights. Contact Mary Graff at (406) 444-2448 or for any questions about the security forms.

With the ongoing activity in this project, OPI will be updating the School Staffing / TEAMS timeline within the first weeks of May.  If you are interested in receiving more specific information about the School Staffing Project / TEAMS as it comes available, please subscribe to the School Staffing / TEAMS newsletter.

All the information you will need for the School Staffing Project, including contact information and an overview, can be found on the OPI School Staffing website.
