Important Changes to NYS Certification-Updated
March 1, 2012
At their February meeting, the New York State Board of Regents approved a delay in the beginning date for the new testing requirements for the initial certification of teachers and school building leaders.
Candidates applying for certification on or after May 1st, 2014 will be required to take certain new New York State teacher certification exams.
Thus, anyone graduating in FALL 2013 or earlier is under the CURRENT regulations. You will have until April 30, 2014 to meet certification requirements if you haven't met them at the time of graduation. If you apply for certification and satisfy the requirements before May 1, 2014, you can take the CURRENT exams, NO e-portfolio.
If you are applying for certification on or after May 1, 2014, NEW exams (except for Content Specialty Test, where you can take the current version in case the new revised CST is not ready yet) AND
e-portfolio are required.
