Access or Create Your IEIN (Illinois Teachers)

image from
Illinois Educators are required to enter their Illinois Educator Identification Number (IEIN) when signing into and evaluating professional development activities.

To find your IEIN, you'll need to either access or create your account in the Educator Licensure Information System (ELIS)

Once you have your IEIN, there are a few tricks you can use to keep it handy so you can access it easily when needed.
  • I've seen several educators simply take a screenshot or snap a picture of the screen showing the IEIN and keep that on their phone or other personal portable device. 
  • Another way would be to copy it and paste it into a Google Document, and make the font large and bold. Next, you can save that into the top level of Drive or into a "My PD" folder, etc. If you use the Grid View in Google Drive, you will be able to see the number without even opening the file.
  • iOS users can copy/paste it into the Notes app to keep it handy (Thanks to Gyuchan Steele for this reminder)
  • Google Keep is an app that works in Chrome and is also available to iOS and Android users. Using Google Keep, you can copy/paste the number onto a note and keep it at your fingertips no matter what device you use! 
... or I guess you could just write it down... LOL!
