 Short-Term Approval for Bilingual/ESL Endorsement

​Educators with at least nine credit hours toward a Bilingual or an ESL Endorsement or who have successfully passed the content or language tests associated with the endorsement may submit Form 73-96 to request a short-term approval from ISBE. If approved, the endorsement will be added to the educator’s Professional Educator License for a period of three years. The educator will have three years to complete all missing requirements to keep the ESL or Bilingual Endorsement. This short-term approval is non-renewable. ​ ​
