It's about great public schools.

Resources

Teacher Certification Resources

The Charter Center’s resources are compiled from NYSED and our experience assisting teachers to navigate the certification process. Schools participating in our Teacher Certification Program will also find additional resources through the HR community of practice.

Please note: The Charter Center’s resource guide “Applicants from Other States Seeking NYS Classroom Teaching Certificates” reflects recent updates in exams and exam requirements for eligible interstate candidates.

For additional detailed information for both teachers and school administrators with out-of-state credentials, visit the NYSED’s TEACH website

Distributing Individualized State Test Score Information to Parents

Charter school parents do not have access to the DOE parent NYC Schools Account to view their child’s standardized test score results. The responsibility of communicating these standardized test score results, such as those from the state grades 3-8 ELA and Math exam, lies solely with the charter school. Most charter schools send out a letter to parents following exam administration with test score information.

ELLS: NYSITELL Administration and Scanning

How do schools identify ELL students once they are enrolled in the charter school?

Under federal mandate, schools must administer a home language survey at the time of entrance. If a student is identified as potentially ELL after the home language survey and informal interview, the school must administer a valid and reliable English language proficiency assessment to determine if the student is an ELL.
