Assignment of Professional Development for Non-licensed Personnel
The Arkansas Department of Education requires that ArkansasIDEAS accounts are assigned according to the individual’s designation in the Arkansas Educator Licensure System (AELS). There are two types of accounts, Non-Licensed and Certified Teacher. Approved Support and other designated personnel who are not listed in AELS may have a non-licensed ArkansasIDEAS account created for them if they meet specified requirements.
The Non-Licensed accounts have a limited number of courses available. Before assigning ArkansasIDEAS professional development courses to non-licensed personnel, please check the Non-Licensed Audience Course list. If the course is not listed, it is unavailable to non-licensed account holders. Individual courses cannot be added to non-licensed accounts, nor can non-licensed accounts be upgraded to certified teacher or given access to the Certified Teacher Audience Courses.
