Licensure Renewal Schedule – Spring/Summer 2018
As we approach this licensure renewal season, ISBE is focused on educators having the best experience possible with the Educator Licensure Information System. ISBE expects to have over 200,000 educators renew this summer. To prevent the system from overloading due to increased user traffic, ISBE will stagger renewal periods for educators according to license type.
- Educators who hold a PEL and ELS-CTE license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning April 1, 2018.
- Educators who hold an ELS-PARA license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning April 15, 2018.
- Educators who hold a SUB license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning May 1, 2018.
The “renewal” hot link in educators’ action centers will not be activated until the dates identified above.
Keep in mind that professional development for this renewal cycle must be completed by June 30, 2018 and PELs and ELS-CTEs must be renewed by August 31, 2018 to prevent them from lapsing.
