ELO Application Tips for Special Education Program Aide Licenses

****** We have experienced an overwhelming volume of phone calls and email these past few weeks seeking assistance with ELO and licensing. We will continue to work with educators who had reached out for assistance or started an application online prior to June 30th to be able to assist with technical issues that prevented application completion.  Applications from these educators who made a good faith effort to apply will be considered as having been made timely. ******

Directions for Special Education Program Aide License Applicants in Wisconsin:

IF there is some type of misconduct that needs to be reported, prepare and attach a written explanation of what happenedYou must also provide complete electronic (scanned) copies of documents associated with the matter that can corroborate / illuminate your explanation of the incident. These may include the criminal complaint, judgment of conviction, police reports, disciplinary letters/findings, correspondence, etc., as applicable.  (Note: Court history information printed from the CCAP web site is NOT sufficient.)

  • Have your school district complete and sign the PI-1622-Aide Request.  Scan it into a PDF file that is less than 2 MB in size and save the file so that it is ready to upload into ELO during the application process.
  • Log into the ELO system - http://elo.wieducatorlicensing.org to apply. The bottom section allows you to start a new application:

  • Please note that there are two transactions for this application.  The first transaction is used to gather pertinent data and must be approved by DPI before you can complete the second transaction.  There may be a time-lag between your submission of the first transaction and DPI’s notification to you that you may move to the second transaction.

  • You will pay your application fee during the second transaction.  Have your credit card ready.  If you do not already have a credit card, you should purchase a pre-paid credit card at a convenience store.
