ISBE’s Division of Educator Effectiveness works
to ensure highly prepared and effective teachers are in our classrooms. New legislation (Public Act 100-596) changed requirements to make it easier for qualified out-of-state, retired, and substitute teachers to obtain a license to teach in Illinois. The new law addresses the state’s need for more teachers in the Illinois education workforce. Resources and detailed information are available on our Education Licensure page .
Additionally, ISBE’s year of study aimed at evaluating and improving the teacher workforce in Illinois is concluding. The State Board will receive a final report with recommendations in September.
