NYSED Certification Exam Safety Nets EXTENDED

Priority: Informational

At its October 2016 meeting, the Board of Regents amended the safety net for the revised content specialty test. These safety nets are designed for students who have failed one of these NYS Teacher Certification Exams and will complete all other requirements for certification by Spring 2018 or Spring 2019, depending on the teaching certificate.  In other words, safety nets provide a 2nd chance at meeting some exam requirements for certification. 

Most safety nets are effective through June 30, 2017.  Any student taking advantage of a safety net will then have until June 30, 2018, one year later, to meet all other certification requirements.  After this deadline most safety nets* will expire.  If necessary, candidates may take advantage of multiple safety nets. 

Visit the OASA Digication page on Safety Nets for more information.
