Merge My Educator Account

Merge My Educator Account

I-LEAD allows users to merge multiple existing educator accounts together through the use of the I am an Educator button. Educator accounts are used by people who work in a child care setting. Staff, admins, volunteers, and household members will need their own individual educator account for consent/background check and professional development purposes.

Examples of when to use this feature:

  • You have two or more accounts that need to be merged together
  • You’ve moved from a company that you no longer have access to the email login
  • A paper consent form was sent to a consultant prior to the creation of your I-LEAD account
  • You have multiple consent forms that need to be merged into your current I-LEAD account

The I am An Educator button is located on the I-LEAD Dashboard landing page. It is only visible to users that do not have an active consent form connected to their current I-LEAD account.

To merge your accounts together, please follow the instructions below:

Warning: Account merges CANNOT be reversed

  1. Begin by clicking the I am an Educator button (Fig 1)
  2. Enter your date of birth and last four digits of your Social Security Number; Click Submit (Fig 2)
  3. Verify that your information is correct and click My Information is Correct (Fig 3)
  4. Once the system locates your information, a “You have been verified as an Educator.” message will appear. Press Update Profile to finalize the process.
