I hope this note finds you all well. This email is meant for those of you in various states of obtaining certain certifications or extensions with the State Education Department. To quote from the NYSUT guidance memo that discusses this matter:
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the State Education Department (SED) has amended several regulations that govern certification in NY. These amendments may help individuals with certificates that expire in August 2020, have applied/are applying for certificates or certificate extensions before September 1, 2020, as well as special education teachers who teach in a special class.
Attached to this email is the aforementioned NYSUT guidance memo. Here a link to the NYSED webpage outlining these changes.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
