Albert Shanker Grant Program in Support of National Certification of New York State Teachers by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS)

Website Content Area: 
Book Type: 
Paragraphs: 

DESCRIPTION:

Pursuant to §3004-a of the Education Law and Part 86 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, the Albert Shanker Grant Program encourages and supports certified, tenured public school teachers in New York State seeking a national teaching certificate from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).

Consistent with efforts of the New York State Board of Regents to achieve higher learning standards statewide, it is the mission of the NBPTS to develop high and rigorous performance standards for accomplished teachers. In support thereof, the National Board has developed a national, voluntary certification system to encourage reflective practice, and to assess and certify teachers who meet national standards of excellence.

The NBPTS is a nonprofit organization of teachers and other education stakeholders created in 1987 to assist in improving student learning through the establishment of higher, more rigorous standards of knowledge and performance for teachers. By defining and recognizing highly accomplished teaching practices, a certificate awarded by the National Board attests that a teacher has been judged by his or her peers as one who meets meaningfully high and rigorous standards of knowledge and performance. He or she has demonstrated the ability, in a variety of settings, to make sound professional judgments about students’ learning needs and to act effectively on those judgments. It is the sole provider of such certification.

To assure equitable access of qualified teachers, the New York State Albert Shanker Grant Program provides direct funding to individual candidate registration accounts with the  National Board to assure full payment of the registration fees of qualified candidates, in addition to providing appropriate reimbursement directly to qualified candidates on completion of their full candidacy efforts for their initial, out-of-pocket registration deposits with NBPTS.  Pursuant to §3004-a and Part 86, all eligible candidates are awarded up to $2,500 in support of this effort, to the extent that funding is available.

Paragraphs: 

DESCRIPTION:

Central to New York's postsecondary education policy is assuring access to higher education for students regardless of social or economic circumstances.  HEOP has been the key vehicle for minority and disadvantaged groups to access the State's strong and varied independent college sector since 1969.  HEOP grants are provided to degree-granting independent institutions which provide programs of academic and financial support to students who are both educationally and economically disadvantaged.  HEOP provides funds to assist in the testing and recruitment of prospective students; structured support services including a pre-freshman summer program, counseling, tutoring, and remedial/developmental coursework, financial assistance toward their college expenses and other services.

In 2014-2015, approximately 4,750 FTE students were served in 53 programs around the State.  Funds are allocated to each sponsoring institution on the basis of an approved proposal and budget.  Payments are authorized following the receipt and analysis of periodic reports, with payment levels based on authorized expenditures and targeted enrollment levels.

The economic benefits to our State and nation are enormous.  HEOP and the opportunity programs in the public sector have proven successful in helping to ameliorate the problem of youth underemployment and unemployment in New York State by concentrating on students from the lowest socioeconomic levels, and providing them with improved life and career skills.  HEOP graduates stay, work and pay taxes in the State and contribute to their communities.

Mentor Teacher Internship Program

Website Content Area: 
Book Type: 
Paragraphs: 

DESCRIPTION:

The Mentor Teacher-Internship Program (MTIP) supports eligible public school districts and BOCES in developing and providing structured guidance and assistance by experienced, highly qualified teachers (mentors) to beginning teachers (interns) in their first or second year of teaching.  The Mentor Teacher internship Program (MTIP) provides the opportunity for beginning teachers to broaden and enhance their classroom teaching and related skills while participating in a productive, supportive and collegial mentoring experience.

These programs allow experienced teachers (mentors) who demonstrate mastery of pedagogical skills, subject matter, and interpersonal skills to provide guidance and support to entry-level teachers (interns) in their first or second year of teaching.

The State system of teacher certification has historically provided that a provisionally certified teacher may be employed full time in a public school. During initial employment, inexperienced novice teachers enter the classroom with full responsibility as practicing professionals and too often with little assistance to ease the transition from the preservice (theoretical) to service (application) phase of their careers. The additional support provided through these teacher mentoring programs is intended to encourage retention of competent persons in teaching, and enhance teachers' skill levels at an earlier point in their development.

Grant awards to applicant districts are distributed competitively based on quality and adherence to the statutory and regulatory guidelines.

Teacher Opportunity Corps (TOC)

Website Content Area: 
Book Type: 
Paragraphs: 

DESCRIPTION:

In April 1987, the State Legislature authorized the creation of TOC.  The two-fold purpose of the TOC is to: (1) fund the development and implementation of high-quality, innovative and effective teacher preparation programs which provide prospective teachers with the skills, attitudes and behaviors essential for success in New York State schools that serve a high concentration of at-risk students; and (2) to recruit and train more teachers who are from racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in education (African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Native Alaskan, Asian/Pacific Islander) and/or who are economically disadvantaged. The TOC initiative is based on the following principles:  (1) that empowerment of teachers and administrators begins with preparation; (2) that teachers are key to effective education; (3) that teachers and administrators equipped with sound pedagogical and managerial skills are critical to the long-term solution to schools in crisis; (4) that recruitment of teachers without adequate preparation for using best practices in schools in crisis is a disservice to students, communities, schools and prospective teachers; and (5) that higher education has to be more responsive to the needs of prospective teachers in relation to preparing them to effectively work with students from diverse ethnic, linguistic, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

The TOC approaches the issue of instruction and counseling of at-risk students through long-term improvement of teacher preparation.  The courses, recruitment methods, and curriculum developed with funds provided from this program must have the potential for replication, and also must have the potential for strengthening existing teacher preparation programs. TOC participants must be supported via mentoring designed to support and retain them in their critical first year of teaching.

Like the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program, which it replaces, the federally funded TLQP Program is a competitive grant opportunity to support local, regional, and statewide initiatives to improve the teaching of core academic subjects.  With an emphasis on the educational needs of high-need schools and the goal of improving student achievement, the TLQP Program promotes collaborative relationships that will improve both teacher preparation programs and professional development for in-service teachers.  The TLQP Program requires that the collaborating partners include the teacher preparation division of an institution of higher education, a college or division of arts and sciences, and at least one high-need local educational agency.  By using educational activities that have been tested and judged effective, successful TLQP programs support current educators to help all students improve their academic achievement.

The TLQP Educational Leadership program Enhancement Project is a competitive grant opportunity to support local, regional, and statewide initiatives to improve the teaching of core academic subjects.  The emphasis is on the educational needs of high-need schools thereby improving student achievement.  The Educational Leadership Program Enhancement Project is intended to be a catalyst for the kind of collaboration that can generate significant and sustainable improvements in providing aspiring educational leaders with the knowledge and skills required to successfully lead in high needs schools.  The Educational Leadership Program Enhancement Project offers an opportunity to meet these ambitious goals by developing model programs for the development of educational leaders.  The New York State Education Department’s plan for a Cohesive Leadership System in New York State is premised upon the recognition of a growing body of research that evidences the strong correlation between school leadership and improved student learning.
