CTLE Approved Professional Development - OUR major goal!!
NYS State Education Department Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) Credits

STANYS has been approved by NYSSED as a CTLE provider.  Accepted workshops will need to meet NYSED CTLE requirements. It is strongly recommended that you read the CTLE guidelines as you develop and write your workshop proposal.  Select CTLE criteria that will be the focus of your presentation, be it one or more than one, and strive to create a workshop that meets that criteria. Use this focus to write your workshop description.


Although it is unlikely that in a 50 minute workshop you could cover ALL the CTLE criteria listed above, it will help if your workshop description makes reference to, or uses their language. You should refer to the criteria during the workshop, or provide resources via handouts, or the google docs folder which will be made available to conference attendees.    

Please read the safety guidelines:
