Special Applications to Change Students with Disabilities and Literacy Programs

March 28, 2023

In September 2022, the Board of Regents voted to amend section 52.21 of the Commissioner's regulations to create registration requirements for programs leading to the Initial and/or Professional Students with Disabilities (All Grades) and  Literacy (All Grades) certificates. Registration for currently registered Literacy (Birth-Grade 6) or Literacy (Grades 5-12) programs will end by September 1, 2026. Registration for currently registered SWD (Grades 1-6) and SWD (Grades 7-12) programs will end by September 1, 2029. Special applications to change currently registered Literacy and SWD (Grades 1-6) and SWD (Grades 7-12) programs have been developed and are available on our Teacher, Educational Leader, or Pupil Personnel Services Program Registration webpage under Applications for Program Change.
