A 2008 state law requires a school board or other school hiring authority to contact the Board of Teaching before hiring a new teacher to determine if disciplinary action has ever been taken against the individual. The Teacher Discipline Inquiry System (TDIS) is a password-protected online search application created for this purpose. School boards or other appointing authorities should designate an individual to access TDIS.
Access the Teacher Disciplinary Inquiry System.
New users will need to set up an account before using the system. Requests will be approved by the Board of Teaching. Users must search for records by teacher file folder number. A License Lookup feature is available if the file folder number is not known.
Disciplinary action taken against a licensee will be available on this system. This action represents the final action taken by the Board. Only public information will be presented; the Board is unable to provide additional information due to data privacy laws.

In addition to recognizing the unique potential of gifted and talented youth, seize the opportunity to laud the efforts of the parents, educators, counselors and psychologists with whom they work. Their sustained efforts, coupled with the organized advocacy of the Minnesota Council for Gifted and Talented (MCGT) and the Minnesota Educators of Gifted and Talented (MEGT), help make our state one in which gifted learners are honored and valued.
