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

STANYS has been approved by NYSSED as a CTLE provider.  It is STANYS’ goal to have workshops that meet NYSED CTLE requirements. Since most of our attendees are looking to receive CTLE credit and make their workshop choices based on this designation, it is strongly recommended that you read the CTLE guidelines as you develop and write your workshop proposal.  


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:

Safety Guidelines

1. Presenters, exhibitors, and keynote speakers should seek permission from STANYS for open flames or other potentially dangerous or hazardous demonstrations.

2. All local safety laws should be enforced by STANYS at their Annual Conference and at Section meetings, conferences, and workshops.

3. The STANYS Safety Committee incorporates safety provisions in the materials given to presenters and exhibitors.
