If you are having difficulty entering your proper User Name or Password, please remember Passwords and User Names are "case sensitive". The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issues User Names for Massachusetts Educators to view their licensure information and apply for or renew a Massachusetts Educator's License. The Department also issues User Names for school and district staff, and staff from other organizations, who need access to secure web-based applications available through the Department's ESE Security Portal. If a Profile exists with your name and personal information, you will be reminded of your User Name once we receive enough information to make a match. To retrieve your user name, you will be required to navigate to the ELAR homepage and use the Forgot User Name link.
If you use ESE Security Portal Applications on behalf of your school, district, or other organization, please see your organization's Directory Administrator. Your Directory Administrator can reset your password
for your work account

. Many people who access ESE Security Portal applications for their school, district, or other organization, are also a licensed Massachusetts educator. If this is true for you, you can use the Retrieve Username/Reset Password tool
for your personal account.
