DISTRICT LEAD CREDENTIAL

NYSED will require that all persons serving as the Lead Reviewer for two or more DTSDE reviews OR as the person responsible for providing oversight to two or more DTSDE School Reviews with District Oversight receive a DTSDE District Lead Credential. 

In order to receive the DTSDE District Lead Credential*, individuals must complete the following:

Requirement 1: Attend the following three workshops during the 2015-16 school year:

Questioning and Interviewing Techniques

*To be offered at Session A, Session B, Session C, and Session D

Measuring Impact

*To be offered at Session A, Session B, Session C, and Session D

Report Writing

*To be offered at Session A, Session B, Session C, and Session D

Requirement 2: Participate on a “Training Review” led by a NYSED-supplied Outside Educational Expert (OEE) and a NYSED staff representative.**  Dates and more information will be shared shortly regarding this requirement.

Requirement 3: Pass an online assessment.

*NOTE: Previous graduates from the NYSED DTSDE Certification program will be automatically awarded the DTSDE District Lead Credential

**In addition, those who participate in the DTSDE Certification program during the 2015-2016 school year will not be required to complete Requirement 2 (Training Review).  Certification participants will be expected to complete Requirements 1 and 3.

The sessions that serve as pre-requisites for the District Lead Credential will be offered throughout the year, in the event that participants are unable to attend a certain institute. 

If no one from the district is able to complete the three requirements necessary to conduct two or more District-led reviews or oversee School Reviews with District Oversight, then NYSED will provide a list of OEEs who have fulfilled the requirements to the district.

Please note, the requirements apply to both district personnel and prospective District-identified OEEs interested in leading two or more reviews.
