2013 Conversion to Illinois Professional Educator Licenses

Standard or Master Teaching, School Service Personnel, Administrator

 

What is happening?   Professional educator certification is changing. June 30, 2013, is the target date for implementation of new Illinois Licensure system. ECS (Educator Certification System) is scheduled to be replaced by Educator License Information System (ELIS) on June 30, 2013.  ELIS will not collect or display certificate renewal activities. Access to ECS is scheduled to cease when ELIS begins.

 

What does that mean to me? We have been told that professional development activities that you have recorded in ECS will not transfer to ELIS. You will not have access to ECS to retrieve or print out those activities.

 

What about renewal requirements for license renewal in 2014 and beyond? The State Board is rewriting renewal requirements for all educators, to be implemented for the 2013-14 school year. There are no firm details available at this time.

 

What should I do now?

Before June 30, 2013,

  • Log on to ECS at www.isbe.net/ECS.
  • Update address and phone in My Profile, Personal Settings.
  • Update email address in My Profile, Account Settings.
  • Click on Professional Development, Activities and print your list of activities.
  • Click on My Credentials, Current Credentials, and print your credentials page.
  • If you are active in an Illinois public school and you have a 2013 renewal date, complete your renewal steps through the ROE or on ECS including payment of registration fees by June 1, 2013, to ensure completion by June 30, 2013.
  • If you are a 2013 renewal, print your statement of assurance after it is approved and keep a copy in your file.
