Important NYSED Updates for Certification Exam Safety Nets

At its April 2016 meeting, the Board of Regents, by emergency regulation, extended the safety nets for the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST), Educating All Students test (EAS), edTPA, certain redeveloped Content Specialty Tests (CSTs) and the new Multi-Subject: Secondary Teachers Grade 7 - Grade 12 Content Specialty Test. Read the April 2016 Regent Item.

These safety nets will be effective through June 30, 2017. If necessary, candidates may take advantage of multiple safety nets in order to meet the requirements for certification and will have until June 30, 2018, one year later, to meet all other certification requirements.
