Certification to Licensure Changes

All educator's certificates will be exchanged for a license on July 1, 2013. There are several significant changes with the new licensure system and we encourage every educator to read our licensure newsletter located in the Certification/Licensure section of our website. Although most educators will not have significant changes under the new licensure, many will have to take action this summer to be able to teach this fall. We are asking all educators to log-on to the Illinois State Board of Education's Educator Certification System (ECS) to update his or her personal and professional contact information such as email address and mailing address. In addition, all educators should print out their credentials and professional development activities in the system for back-up purposes. ISBE will no longer be issuing paper certificates or providing paper applications. There will be three meetings to present all of the changes. Click here to register for any of the events.
