CTLE Credit

NYSATA is a New York State Education Department (NYSED) approved Continuing Teacher Leader Education (CTLE) sponsor. NYSED requires documentation and verification of attendance for CTLE credit. In an effort keep this documentation process simple yet maintain accuracy and appropriate records, NYSATA has established a specific CTLE certification process for our conference attendees.

All participants should follow the same process whether you need to officially document CTLE hours for certification or to simply provide verification of attendance for your school district. Attendees are responsible for maintaining their own CTLE records and obtaining whatever pre-approval is required by their school or district for credit.


STEP 1—AT THE CONFERENCE Document your Attendance Hours
Find the Attendance Record Formalt in your conference program or registration packet, or download it here. Use it to record the workshops you attend and enter the WORSKSHOP CODE, category (P-­‐Pedagogy, C-­‐Content, ELL-­‐ English Language Learning), and number of minutes for each workshop.

Learning categories are not assigned by NYSATA. Use your professional judgement to select a category based on the content of the workshop. Minutes can be divided among two categories if appropriate to the content of the workshop.

The WORKSHOP CODE is a four-digit number that will be provided at the end of each session by the session presenter. The code is your verification of attendance—no signatures are needed! Please try to record the code and number of minutes immediately at the end of each session. If you miss a code, seek help at the registration desk.

STEP 2—AFTER THE CONFERENCE Obtain a NYSED-­Compliant CTLE Certificate
Click here to go to the Certification Form and enter your total hours in each category. An automated NYSED-­compliant certificate will be generated as confirmation of your form submission. Please print the certificate and attach it to your Attendance Record. The certificate is valid only with the accompanying Attendance Record . NYSED CTLE regulations require teachers to keep copies of CTLE evidence (both the certificate and record form) for eight years. NYSATA cannot accept responsibility for lost certificates.

The Online CTLE CERTIFICATION FORM will remain open until February 1, 2021.
