The Office of Teaching Initiatives has reviewed an issue with the 3116 Assignment code for 6th Grade English and advised on rerunning the reports to remove some teachers deemed to have appropriate certification. Notification will be sent to CEOs when the reports are posted to the Business Portal. We do not know at this point when that will be. The timeline will be adjusted as needed. For questions regarding certifications, please contact the Office of Teaching Initiatives at TCERT@nysed.gov or at 518-474-3901.

The 2016-17 Out of Certification reports are planned to be posted to the NYSED Business Portal this afternoon, June 27th. No report was generated for districts, BOCES and charter schools where all teachers were found to be certified.

When final, data contained in this report will be used in the New York State Report Cards and for federal reporting purposes. All corrections must be made and the ePMF forms certified in TAA by the CEO by July 28, 2017.
