Renewal Application Directions for Master Educator License via National Board Process

State Budget Licensure Changes

Important NoticeEducators who hold a Professional or Master Educator license that was supposed to expire on June 30, 2018, DO NOT NEED TO APPLY to renew their license with credits or a PDP.  The state budget has removed the expiration dates from these licenses, and we are working to have license lookup reflect that.

Please visit the Latest Licensing News blog for information on the state budget's impact on licensure. All available information has been posted to the Latest Licensing News blog. Please Note: the first post relating to the new license rules was written September 22nd.

Directions for teachers and pupil services professionals who want to renew their 10-year Master Educator license via the National Board process:

IF there is some type of misconduct that needs to be reported, prepare and attach a written explanation of what happened. You must also provide complete electronic (scanned) copies of documents associated with the matter that can corroborate / illuminate your explanation of the incident. These may include the criminal complaint, judgment of conviction, police reports, disciplinary letters/findings, correspondence, etc., as applicable.  (Note: Court history information printed from the CCAP web site is NOT sufficient.)

  • Scan your National Board certificate into a PDF file that is less than 2 MB in size and save the file so that it is readily available to upload into ELO. 
  • Have your credit card ready.  If you do not already have a credit card, purchase a pre-paid credit card at a convenience store.
  • Log into the ELO system - to apply. The top section should say "It's Time to Renew."  Click "Select" next to the master educator license you want to renew.  If you have more than one license (including Professional Educator licenses) to renew, you will need to repeat the process for each license.  Do not check out until you have submitted applications for all of the licenses you want to renew
