The Kane County Regional Office of Education Licensure Department serves teachers and administrators with all aspects of their credential needs. The ROE gives information on how to apply for licenses, endorsements, approvals; how to register and renew licenses; and how to enter professional development credit hours using ELIS.

For the 2018 Renewal Period, ISBE is staggering renewal periods for educators according to licensure type due to a large amount of licenses up for renewal. The renewal periods are as follows:

  • Educators who hold a PEL and ELS-CTE license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018,  may renew beginning April 1, 2018.
  • Educators who hold an ELS-PARA license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018,  may renew beginning April 15, 2018.
  • Educators who hold a SUB license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018,  may renew beginning May 1, 2018.
