Illinois State Board of Education is staggering licensure renewal for 2018.
The 2018 renewal year is much larger than usual because it is the first year that educators who were issued a substitute teaching license (SUB) or educator license with stipulations endorsed for paraprofessional (ELS-PARA) in the 2013 certificate-to-licensure exchange will be able to renew these licenses.
To prevent the system from overloading due to increased user traffic, the ISBE will stagger renewal periods for educators according to license type:
- Educators who hold a PEL and ELS-CTE license with an expiration of 6/30/18 may renew beginning April 1, 2018.
- Educators who hold an ELS-PARA license, with an expiration of 6/30/18 may renew beginning April 15, 2018.
- Educators who hold a SUB license, with an expiration of 6/30/18 may renew beginning May 1, 2018.
Access to the respective areas will not be active until the dates identified above.
After you renew, you must contact Jen Andrus in Human Resources at 309-793-5900 x205 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
