Vision 20/20

We Support Vision 20/20 Banner

As public educators, we believe public education works. We reject the premise that education in Illinois has failed but recognize its impact has not been equitably delivered to all student populations and that there are opportunities for continuous support. 

ATTENTION Retired Teachers
with Lapsed Educator License

Through December 31, 2017, if you are retired, and your professional educator license has lapsed for failure to renew, you may reinstate that license without penalty by providing proof of retirement from a state retirement system to the State Board of Education. You must submit a copy of a letter from a state retirement system (on official agency letterhead) confirming your retirement. Your name, IEIN, and date of birth must be included with the letter. Upon verification that you are not working in a position requiring a professional educator license, ISBE will reinstate your license.
