      BOARD OF REGENTS NOVEMBER ITEMS

      Educator Diversity report. Last year, the Legislature tasked the Department with preparing a report providing “an overview of teacher diversity throughout the state” (Ed. Law §305 (58)). In developing the draft report, the Department conducted new analysis from our student, teacher, and leader data collections; consulted with partners to review relevant literature on educator diversity both statewide and nationally; and reached out to education leaders throughout our P-20 system for their expertise and insights. This outreach included a survey of educator preparation deans and superintendents, which yielded a 77% response rate; our appreciation goes out to those who participated.

      Department staff presented selected highlights from the draft report to the Board of Regents. The presentation included data on the race, ethnicity, gender, and age of New York educators; key findings from state and national research on barriers to achieving diversity at each step along with pathway; an overview of current efforts to recruit and retain diverse candidates into educator preparation programs, schools, and districts; and preliminary recommendations on programs, practices, and policies that could be implemented by educator preparation programs and school districts.

      ASSESSMENT VOUCHERS

      Education Deans/Directors are currently providing the Office of Teaching Initiatives with the data needed to distribute assessment fee vouchers for the Content Specialty Tests (CSTs), Educating All Students (EAS) test, and edTPA. The vouchers will be distributed this fall after the data are collected from the institutions of higher education.

Institutions that want to prepare new candidates for certification as school counselors, beginning in the Fall 2021 semester and thereafter, must register programs that meet the new registration requirements and lead to Initial, Initial/Professional, or Professional certification.  A new program registration application for school counselor education programs and a related guidance document are now posted on the Office of College and University Evaluation website.  Questions not addressed in the guidance document should be sent to: ocueinfo@nysed.gov.
