This presentation is part of the New School Development Program commissioned by the New York City Charter School Center. Created by charter school expert Cynthia Millinger, Meaningful Professional Development Planning is a guide for new charter schools who need to develop a program that maximizes teachers' time and resources in an efficient manner.
These documents are intended to help school operations staff to navigate through the teacher certification process.
Please note, there have recently been updates in exams and exam requirements and reciprocity. We are currently updating our resources to reflect these changes. For more information about reciprocity, we suggest you read the NYSED's guidelines: here.
