Shutdown of the Educator Licensure Management System (ELMS)
The ELMS system will shut down January 2 - 16, 2023, to prepare for the launch of Portal One of the new Mississippi Educator Career Continuum Archive (MECCA) System on January 17, 2023. Completed applications for licensure, which includes all supporting documentation required for the requested licensure category, submitted on or prior to December 26, 2022, will be processed within ELMS through January 1, 2023. All incomplete licensure applications in pending status will be migrated to Portal One of MECCA and reviewed January 17, 2023.
MECCA will be a single sign-on educator workforce information system that serves as a hub that captures the lifecycle of a Mississippi educator from recruitment to retirement.
Portal One will include an improved educator licensure, educator preparation, and educator misconduct evaluations operations platform that provides a more efficient experience for applicants, Educator Preparation Providers (EPPs) and school districts personnel. MECCA will decrease turnaround time, increase accuracy and productivity, and remove old processes of completing and uploading most paper forms. Future MECCA portals will be released later in 2023 and 2024.
