ELO Application Directions for One-Year Administrator License Renewal/Extension

Updates on the Professional and Master Educator License conversion to Lifetime Licenses; the Background Check application

Important Notice

We continue to work with our vendor on the conversions from “Professional Educator” to “Lifetime Educator.” Please note that educators who hold a valid “Professional" or "Master" Educator License with NO statutory stipulations are already considered to have a “Lifetime License,” even though that status is not currently reflected on our website. At this time there is NO ACTION REQUIRED by educators. Once the conversion is completed we will inform license holders and other stakeholders of the update to our system.

Additionally, Act 59 requires DPI to run a background check every five years on every educator who holds a lifetime license. At this point in time, the Lifetime License background check process has not been finalized because we need to get the Lifetime licenses issued. Once the new process is in place, we will notify those educators who need to have a DPI background check this year and provide instructions.
 

IS THIS THE RIGHT APPLICATION FOR ME?

This application is for educators who held a One-Year Board-Requested Administrator license while serving as an administrator at a school or district while completing an educator preparation program leading to a license for the administrative position. This license may be renewed/extended one time for a total of two years.

Use the Application Checklist to ensure you have completed all appropriate steps of the application.

If you do not fit into this category, please go back and select a different application.
