By offering programs through Ulster BOCES, school districts can receive State Aid. The courses also meet the requirements for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credits.
Professional development is essential for educators wishing to keep their skill sets sharp and their knowledge up-to-date in the ever-changing world of education, Dr. Khoury explains. “This exciting partnership expands the menu of high-quality training and educational opportunities offered through our Instructional Services division.”
Although these courses are not credit bearing in terms of being applicable towards a college degree, they meet the requirements for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credit. New York State education law, which requires professionally certified teachers and Level III teaching assistants to register every five years, also requires them to complete 100 hours of State-approved CTLE professional development within each registration cycle.
