Professional Development

Effective July 1, 2016, Professional Development was replaced by Continuing Teacher and Leadership Education (CTLE) Requirements.

If you are currently in the middle of a Professional Development period, that period expired on June 30, 2016. Your CTLE period will begin when you Register.

Information regarding Registration and CTLE can be found at: http://www.highed.nysed.gov/tcert/resteachers/Registration_CTLE_home.html

Those applying for an Initial Re-issuance certificate:

You will see that there is a 75-hr professional development requirement for that certificate application. These 75 hours are not entered in TEACH by the school district (or the applicant themselves). They can be entered into MyLearningPlan, but the proof of completion of these particular hours must be proven through actual documentation. Be advised that these hours must be completed before you can actually apply for the Initial Re-issuance certificate! Click here for what is acceptable PD hours documentation.
