Tools and Resources for NYS Professional Development Implementation

Awareness - BOCES, districts and PD providers must know the NYS PD standards exist, have some familiarity with them, and understand there is a direction underway to reference these standards at some level, in the PDP regulations and annual Certification requirement.

Implementation - BOCES, districts, and PD providers need to utilize these standards to inform professional development efforts.

Evaluation - BOCES, districts and PD providers need to utilize the standards to reflect on the effectiveness of PD efforts to inform continuous improvement in the provision of high quality PD.

For additional information or support in using these resources, please contact your local Staff and Curriculum Development representative(s) (S/CDN) and New York State Council of Educational Assocations (NYSCEA)
