This page is home to information regarding the maintenance of your license, including professional development opportunities, how-to videos explaining renewal or reinstatement of your license, and guidelines to become an approved professional development provider.

Educators will receive a reminder email from ISBE when it is time to renew their license. To renew, educators​ can log into their ELIS account starting April 1 of the year their license expires. Click the “Helpful Renewal Resources” dropdown below for step-by-step renewal instructions.

If your license requires professional development hours and/or Administrator Academies hours and the renewal option is not available, make sure all hours are met and entered on your Professional Development tab and adjust your employment status accordingly, if needed. Click How Do I Update My Employment StatusPDF Document for step-by-step instructions. You will not be able to renew until all PD/AA requirements are met.​​
