Illinois Educator Certificates have transitioned from a certificate system to a licensure system, moving from 60 types of educator certificates and endorsements to just four licenses:
- Professional Educator License (PEL)
- Educator License with Stipulations (ELS)
- Paraprofessional License (ELS(PARA))
- Substitute License
You can access your license data through the new ELIS – Educator Licensure Information System. Login to ELIS on the ISBE website. For questions or need assistance regarding your Educator License credentials, applications, renewal, registration, endorsements, and/or approvals, please contact the Kane County Regional Office of Education.
