ESE to Discontinue Issuing Hard Copy Licenses

Effective 4/29/11, the Department will discontinue issuing hard copy licenses. The online Educator Licensure and Recruitment (ELAR) system will serve as the official record of educator licensure, and licensure may be verified by the following:

  • Educators may print unofficial copies of their license through their ELAR account;
  • Educators may request a hard copy of their license ($25.00) through their ELAR account or by submitting a request form
  • Districts and educators may verify licensure on the ELAR profile page;
  • Districts can utilize the Licensure Status Drop Box through the ESE Security Portal; and
  • The Department has a 24-hour automated system accessible by calling 781-338-3000 and pressing 2.
