Tips To Get You Through Relicensure

  1. 1. Tips to Get You Through Relicensure
  2. 2. LVIS; Not the King of Rock & Roll <ul><li>LVIS is the IDOE’s online L icensing V erification and I nformation S ystem. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the portal through which all of you relicensure activities must proceed. </li></ul><ul><li> The link to set up your all-important LVIS profile. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Tip # 1; Create Your Profile Early. <ul><li>Do not wait until time to renew to set up your profile through LVIS. </li></ul><ul><li>There have been “glitches” in migrating some data to LVIS and you will experience “technical difficulties” if your data is not correct. </li></ul><ul><li>Correct your profile before proceeding. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember your unique username & password. </li></ul><ul><li>You can check the status of your application. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Tip # 2; Have a debit or credit card handy. <ul><li>There is a fee involved for adding to or renewing your license, and the IN DOE does charge you the fee associated with using a credit card. </li></ul><ul><li>LVIS accepts only Visa and Mastercard debit/credit cards. These are the only allowable forms of payment. </li></ul><ul><li>You must acquire a prepaid Visa or MC card if you do not carry one of these. </li></ul><ul><li>The current renewal cost is $35 plus the additional fee. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Tip # 3: Uploading Credits… <ul><li>If you have difficulty uploading more than one entry or set of university credits, make one entry, log out, then go back in and try to add the next entry. </li></ul><ul><li>If the problem persists, contact IDOE via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page. </li></ul><ul><li>IDOE staff will not field telephone calls directly nor will they entertain “in person” inquiries. </li></ul><ul><li>The entire process is designed to be “on-line.” </li></ul>
  6. 6. Tip #4: It’s not what you know, it’s who you know! <ul><li>Ask your local association president and building principal who the authorized license renewal administrator is for your school district. </li></ul><ul><li>Notify that person immediately upon your submission of your renewal points so that he/she is aware that you are waiting for your renewal. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Tip #5: Wait….but just for a bit. <ul><li>If your renewal has been submitted and you have not received your new license via email within 2 weeks, proceed as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Click on the Application Status link on the MY LVIS page (your profile page). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Check with the local administrator who is authorized to renew your license to see if he/she has been notified. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact IDOE via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Tip #6: Your situation is unique. <ul><li>If your situation is unique and you cannot readily find a way through LVIS to either input information or otherwise address your circumstances, contact IDOE immediately via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page. </li></ul><ul><li>IDOE responses are provided in the order received. </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid contacting IDOE multiple times. It will not help. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not travel to the IDOE offices in Indianapolis. It will not help. </li></ul>
  9. 9. When all else fails? <ul><li>Contact your local association president or UniServ office for assistance. </li></ul>ISTA
