Many credentialing activities during the year are dependent on accurate Submission Course data. Errors in data entry in the local data system are carried over to the Educator Information System (EIS) and may cause technical difficulties for fellow co-workers with renewal recommendations, Site-Based Plan uploads, and licensure checks. Please submit any questions through our Help Desk and include the staff member's name, assignment(s) including grade level, along with Ed ID if known.
Note: Not all activities below will apply to all types of employers (public/charter/non-public) based on DOE reporting requirements, licensure requirements and use of Site-Based Licensing Plans and Professional Development Master Plans.
Please review job postings (especially those online) to ensure any mention of HQT has been removed.
To avoid confusion for applicants, it would be helpful if the job posting specifically listed the license endorsement required for the position (if any).
Job postings should not require applicants provide a “letter of eligibility” as our office is not authorized to provide such a document. Statements of Eligibility are only required for applicants needing a Site-Based Licensing Plan.
Site-Based Licensing Plans Beginning of Plan uploads (please note any plans that must be uploaded before Submission Course is submitted/verified must have a manually entered assignment in EIS that matches the endorsement on the SOE)
Recommended Renewal Submission in EIS (educators, school nurses, educational interpreter/transliterators and paraeducators can apply after recommendation is submitted by employer anytime after 1/1 in the year the license expires)
EIS recommendation instructions for employers (link coming soon!)

advise all leaving staff to ensure they update their profiles in myNHDOE/EIS to include a personal email/phone and to update work email/phone as soon as possible to maintain login access
provide all leaving staff with written verification of professional development completed pertaining to any upcoming renewal cycle while at current SAU
submit a Help Desk request for any assistance or training needed for new administrative staff regarding Credentialing
