About every seven to ten years, the state updates the requirements to earn an Indiana teacher license. The rules for those requirements are often referred to by the law that was enacted to update the requirements. Since August 31, 2011, the current licensing rules are referred to as REPA.
The Indiana Department of Education has a website with information about teacher license application and requirements. Once you are there, click on the LVIS link.
