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. 

SPED: CSE and Compliance

The September 2010 presentation Common Coordination Issues, from the Brooklyn Charter School Student Support Agency, addresses common coordination issues facing schools with Special Education students.

The first half of the presentation covers the NYC Committee on Special Education (CSE), including the structure and function of the CSE, roles and responsibilities of the CSE and the charter school, and best practices for working with the CSE.

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
