Users must change their name on their certification before it can be changed in district systems and RIDEMap.  Districts must check the public website to make sure the name has been changed on the certification before they change it in their system.  We validate on last names, so names must match.

Requests for name changes on certifications should be mailed to the RIDE Certification Office at:

Rhode Island Department of Education

Office of Educator Quality and Certification

255 Westminster Street, 4th Floor

Providence, RI 02903-3400

or emailed

Please include proof of the name change. If you are mailing the documentation, please mark "name change" on the envelope.

If, once all name changes have occurred, you decide you would like your RIDEmap username changed to reflect your name change, please submit a ticket and let us know.
