Professional Educator License*EndorsementsThe license will be endorsed with specific areas and grade levels in which the holder is eligible to teach.
A subsequent endorsement for the same grade level may be added to the Professional Educator License. A subsequent endorsement for the same grade level requires a minimum of 24 semester hours of coursework in the endorsement area, unless otherwise specified by rule, and passage of the applicable content- area test(s).
Current Initial Certificate Holders will have their certificates exchanged for a Professional Educator License (PEL) on July 1, 2013. The license will be valid for the time remaining on the certificate. Initial Certificate holders who have completed four years of teaching this year need not apply for a Standard Certificate and pay the application fee since the Initial Certificate will be exchanged for the PEL at no cost. There are no requirements for moving from the Initial Certificate to the PEL; it is automatic for certificate holders. Individuals who have not yet completed four years of teaching will also have their certificate exchanged for the PEL. Educators should keep Evidence of Completion for all professional development completed during the validity period of the certificate/license.
Professional Educator License National Board Certification*Those with previous NB certification endorsements will transfer over and can be taught.Those that NOW (as of July 1, 2012) earn NB certification will only be able to teach on an Illinois endorsement. NB certification will be noted on the license as a designation.Those with a NB designation will renew automatically after 5 years, allowing for their 10 year renewal cycle.
Professional Educator License*Rules will define which endorsements will require completion of an entire approved programi.e. adding an administrative endorsement to a license endorsed in a teaching field.
