Educator Licensure Information System (ELIS)
On July 1, 2013, Illinois implemented a new system of educator licensure that replaced the
previous system of educator certification. All Illinois teaching, administrative, and school service
personnel certificates have been converted to a corresponding license. Educators did not lose
any of their credentials or endorsements in this transition. ELIS is a web-based system that allows educators and district administrators access to licensure data.
