CTLE Professional Development Requirements for Professional Certificate Holders
The CTLE requirement pertains to all Professional Certificate Holders (not permanent or initial), as well as all Level III Teaching Assistants, and requires 100 hours of professional development for each five-year registration period.
The district is no longer responsible for reporting this information to NYSED. Certificate holders need to maintain their own completed certificates, and hold them for no less than three years following the end of their five-year registration period.
- The district will offer CTLE approved professional learning throughout the school year, as described in the CLV Professional Development Plan. As part of our plan, the District can provide CTLE certification for in-district workshops, as well as CA BOCES-facilitated workshops/conferences/courses offered at the district or their learning site.
- Upon completion of an approved in-district workshop or CA BOCES facilitated workshop/conference/course, the presenter will verify your attendance. Please be sure to sign-in at the start of the workshop, and you must stay until the end of the scheduled time. If you do not sign in at scheduled conferences/workshops/courses, you will be marked absent, and subsequently not eligible for CTLE hours.
- Once you have completed the CTLE approved professional learning, you will be required to log your hours using the CLV CTLE Professional Development Credit Requestonline survey.
- Once your CTLE Professional Development Credit Request has been approved, you will receive an email and certificate. It is recommended that you download your certificate and save it as PDF on your computer and/or a flash drive as a back-up. Consider a folder name such as CTLE Requirement 2016-2021 for each five-year cycle and house the electronic certificates in that folder.
