Regional Superintendent, Tammy L. Muerhoff, Message

Regional Superintendent’s Message Summer 2018

With daylight savings day officially passed, I am certain others are anticipating the warmer temperatures and Spring weather just as I am. Have a   wonderful remainder of the school year and a fantastic Summer.

Thank you for all you do for the students in your classrooms and in your school buildings!

Please note that there has been a change for the availability of licensure renewal in ELIS due to a significant number of types of licenses that are anticipated to renew at the conclusion of FY18.

Information from the Illinois State Board of Education follows:

Licensure Renewal Staggering:

This year, more than 200,000 educators will have licenses up for renewal. To put this number in perspective, approximately 60,000 educator licenses are normally up for renewal in a given year. The 2018 renewal year is much larger than usual because it is the first year that educators who were issued a substitute teaching license (SUB) or educator license with stipulations endorsed for paraprofessional (ELS-PARA) in the 2013 certificate-to-licensure exchange will be able to renew these licenses.

As this licensure renewal season is upon us, the ISBE is focused on educators having the best experience possible with the Educator Licensure Information System. To prevent the system from overloading due to increased user traffic, ISBE will stagger renewal periods for educators according to license type.

  • Educators who hold a PEL and ELS-CTE license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning April 1, 2018.
  • Educators who hold an ELS-PARA license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning April 15, 2018.
  • Educators who hold a SUB license, with an expiration of 6/30/2018, may renew beginning May 1, 2018.

The “renewal” link in educators’ action centers will not be activated until the dates identified above.

Middle Grade Endorsements

Any applications for 5-8 middle grade endorsements submitted on or after February 1, 2018 will be evaluated under the new middle grade requirements. Educators who already hold a middle school or junior high endorsement on their license will need to provide proof of 24 semester hours + applicable tests in order to add a middle grade endorsement. Educators holding a junior high endorsement will NOT have to complete a full or focused program in middle grades.

Assistant Regional Superintendent Jodie Atteberry


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing summer. Our work together this past year has brought collaboration and unification on many levels. With the start of the 2017-18 school year, I’m excited to continue our work together.

The 31st Annual  “CURRENT EVENTS CONTEST” sponsored by the Rock Island   County Regional Office of Education and Tammy L. Muerhoff, Rock Island County      Regional Superintendent of Schools, was held at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in May.

The 8th grade winners were as follows:

1st Place – Torin Kovach, Woodrow Wilson Middle School

2nd Place – Hailee Wasson, Seton Jr. High

3rd Place – Gage Mowry, Seton Jr. High

The Rock Island County Regional Office of Education and Tammy L. Muerhoff are excited to be hosting this event again in the spring.


ECO Camp is taking registrations now, for Friday, September 22, 2017. Also, the spring session has openings for a couple of groups on Thursday, April 26 and a couple on Friday, April 27, 2018.

It’s been a wonderful experience being able to attend such an outstanding event for our local students. Last year during the Fall & Spring sessions we had three schools representing over 195 students.

Some of the unique experiences for students have included: Professional biologists,   forestry experts, soil scientists, and a nature preserve ranger are just some of the  leaders who share their expertise with students who attend ECO-CAMP.  Students and their teachers travel the trails of Loud Thunder Forest Preserve to learn about forestry, soils, prairie, and/or wetlands from the experts.

Also, this field experience has direct application to the Illinois Learning Standards, including Illinois history.

Please contact Julie @ julie.cox@riroe.com or at 309-736-1111 for further information.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve the schools, staff and students of Rock Island County.


“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”

2017 Educator License Renewal



It’s that time of year again; renewal/registration is upon us. For those of you who have a renewal date of 2017 you may do so anytime between April 1 – June 30, 2017. As most of you know ISBE has went paperless so everything is done online through your ELIS account.  We have added some documents to our website to help guide you through getting into your account.  Please go to www.riroe.com click on the “Teacher Resources” tab, then click on “ELIS User Manual”, use this manual as your guide to ELIS.  You will need to enter all of your Professional Development (PD) before you will be able to renew/register.

ISBE has added some “How-to-videos” to help you through the processes of navigating your ELIS account; how to create your account; how to update; how to renew, etc. click here for videos.

*Please remember that if you are up for renewal/registration and do not register/renew your license by June 30th, if it is set for renewal, this will lead to an expired license with all expired licenses lapsing on Sept. 1, 2017. Once a license has lapsed it will cost $500.00 plus your PD hours or 9 semester credit hours to renew. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at brandi.schwanke@riroe.com or by calling 309/736-1111.

Here are a few links to some documents that may lend you some guidance. (these links will be available when the information is ready)
