Extractions: Information Bulletin No. 200112 (Replaces 979811 989913 990001 and 990024) July 2001 TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION Local leaders and members are currently faced with many problems and questions concerning certification. This is due in no small part to the certification regulations which went into effect on September 2, 1993 as well as the changes recently adopted by the Regents that go into effect in September 2004. This Bulletin describes those regulations which are currently in place. The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to summarize the information most commonly sought by members and local leaders. Please bear in mind that this Information Bulletin is for INFORMATION ONLY , and is not to be considered as an official interpretation of the rules and regulations of the Commissioner. Official answers on the interpretation of certification regulations and certification status can only be obtained from the Office of Teaching of the State Education Department (see sidebar for contact information). HIGHLIGHTS Certification may be achieved in six ways: through the completion of an approved program; through individual assessment of a candidate's educational background; through Interstate Agreements, including the Northeast Regional Credential; through completion of a new alternative certification program, and new regulations for out-of-state teachers.

Before it's over, the teacher at Virginia Shuman Young Elementary School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will have put in long hours keeping journals of her instructional practice, submitted to being videotaped while leading her class, and prepared for a comprehensive, daylong exam covering both pedagogy and subject-matter content. If successful, she'll join the elite corps of her profession as an educator certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. And, thanks to legislation Florida passed last spring, she'll also enjoy a yearly bonus from the state, currently worth up to $6,800. "Initially, I was interested just because I thought it'd be a good learning experience for me, but the money also makes it worth it," said the 28-year-old educator. "It's definitely going to bring in better teachers and keep them in the classroom."

Extractions: The Secretary of Education is required by statute to publish a list of nationally recognized accrediting agencies and associations which the Secretary determines to be reliable authorities as to the quality of training offered by educational institutions and programs. The National Advisory Committee on Accreditation and Institutional Eligibility assists the Secretary in determining which accrediting bodies should be listed. Accrediting bodies that achieve recognition are reviewed at least every 4 years thereafter. The commissions of the regional associations and the national institutional and specialized accrediting agencies which are recognized by the Secretary have no legal control over educational institutions or programs. They promulgate standards of quality or criteria of institutional excellence and approve or admit to membership those institutions that meet the standards of criteria.

Extractions: Dec. 5, 2002 STARKVILLE, Miss.A state-supported effort to increase the number of national board-certified teachers in Mississippi is improving instruction, increasing parental involvement and enhancing awareness of teaching as a profession. Those are among the conclusions found in a recent Mississippi State study conducted by Peggy A. Swoger and Jack Blendinger that examined the impact of 1997-2000 state legislative policies on schools, teachers and students. Swoger directs the universitys World Class Teaching Program, while Blendinger is a professor of educational leadership. Mississippi, which just announced its 2002 list, ranks among the top 10 states nationally in the numbermore than 1,400of National Board of Professional Teaching-certified teachers. State legislative incentives for certification include a $6,000 annual supplement, reimbursement of fees for candidates who complete the effort and a statewide mentoring program available at MSU and five other universities. The year-long voluntary process for K-12 teachers is rigorous, requiring the development of an extensive instructional portfolio and the completion of a written test. During the time period covered by the MSU study, more than 1,000 Mississippi teachers earned certification.
Extractions: Nov. 12, 1997 STARKVILLE, Miss.-For a group of Mississippi teachers, a year of intense study is paying off with passing grades on a difficult national assessment. Nineteen elementary, junior high and high school instructors from North Mississippi to the Gulf Coast recently completed performance-based testing requirements established by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards. Of those, 15 achieved their goal with assistance from the World Class Teaching Program in Mississippi State University's College of Education. Last year, the Legislature and the state Department of Education established the WCT program at the Starkville institution to support state teachers seeking certification. Program standards "are some of the most rigorous in the nation" and compare in difficulty to exams for professions such as accounting, said Dean of Education William Graves. "It is a demanding voluntary assessment that identifies master teachers for the future," he said. "Only three states-North Carolina, Ohio, and Minnesota-certified a larger number of teachers than Mississippi did this year."

Extractions: ALBANY, NY 12234 TO: The Honorable the Members of the Board of Regents FROM: Johanna Duncan-Poitier COMMITTEE: Higher and Professional Education TITLE OF ITEM: DATE OF SUBMISSION: June 11, 2003 PROPOSED HANDLING: Discussion RATIONALE FOR ITEM: To provide regular updates on elements of the Regents teaching policy STRATEGIC GOALS: Goals 2 and 3 AUTHORIZATION(S): SUMMARY: In 1998, when the Board of Regents enacted the new teaching policy "Teaching to Higher Standards: New Yorks Commitment," the Board directed the Department to monitor the availability of teachers and take appropriate steps if the supply of certified teachers falls significantly below the demand. In July 2000, the Board of Regents approved the alternative teacher certification (ATC) program. The goal of the Board of Regents in approving avenues of non-traditional teacher preparation was to address the shortage of teachers in certain subject areas and geographic areas by authorizing programs that would enable qualified candidates to begin teaching more quickly, while maintaining the quality of their preparation. ATC programs must meet all of the teacher education standards adopted by the Board of Regents in 1998. Also included is information concerning the fall 2002 and spring 2003 site visits to colleges offering alternative teacher certification programs and feedback from the program deans identifying both strengths and weaknesses in the program and where the State Education Department needs to provide additional technical assistance. Interviews which took place during May 2003 with Teaching Fellows, mentors and principals/assistant principals in both SURR and non-SURR schools reveal the need for strong support from school leaders for the success of the alternative certification students and the need for the NYCDOE to improve its mentoring program for their Teaching Fellows.
