DASA Updates 1 • DASA workshop will be a graduation requirement for all initial certification candidates graduating from May 2014 forward. • DASA workshop will be a prerequisite for all graduate programs that require candidates to come in with an initial certificate beginning spring 2014. Candidates who don't have this workshop cannot be recommended for their second and/or professional certification beginning in May 2014. • DASA Training completed by teachers in school districts generally does not meet the DASA Requirement for teacher certification. • Candidates graduating in December 2013 must apply for their certification prior to December 31, 2013 to avoid the DASA workshop requirement. • The DASA workshop requirement will be written in the catalog and effective beginning with the Spring 2014 semester.

New SUNY Admission Requirements for Teacher Education Programs What we are being told: • The 3.0 is a firm admissions requirement for all teacher education programs. However, it is not a standard that needs to be maintained throughout the program. • More latitude for meeting this admissions standard with freshmen than with transfers. • Graduate programs will need to require applicants to take a nationally-normed admissions test as a criteria for admissions (along with a 3.0). • Implementation details and discussions are still on-going.
Proposal to Retire TEC-CC Proposal:Due to our campus’ growth in knowledge and understanding of teacher education regulations and guidelines, the members of the Teacher Education Council believe that there is no longer a need for a separate level of curricular review specifically related to teacher education programs. Therefore, the TEC membership proposes retiring the Teacher Education Council’s Curriculum Committee (TEC-CC) from SUNY Cortland’s curricular review process.
Proposed Process • Propose and discuss the proposal to retire the TEC-CC from the SUNY Cortland Curriculum Review Process at a meeting of the Teacher Education Council (TEC). • Revise the proposal per the TEC membership. • Conduct an electronic vote of TEC members to endorse (or not) the proposal. • If the proposal is endorsed by the TEC membership, forward proposal to the college’s Educational Policy Committee for its review and action.

edTPA Updates 2 Information from edTPA Workshop: • Cut scores will be announced sometime in November. • If candidates do not pass, they can resubmit one task for $100 or resubmit a brand new edTPA for $300 • Resubmissions must contain completely new work - including completely new video, new commentary and new student work samples, etc. • Each task is evaluated based on the rubrics for that task and nothing else. Each task must stand on its own merit. • No edTPA for: Speech Pathology, Ed Tech Specialist, or for candidates entering the field through career and tech ed pathways • If we encounter resistance from school districts in allowing our candidates to complete the edTPA, NYSED will assist.
edTPA/NYSTCE Vouchers • SUNY Cortland received 25 vouchers for edTPA and 50 vouchers for NYSTCE exams from NYSED. • Each voucher covers the cost of the one exam. • Vouchers are meant to support candidates who may struggle to pay for NYSTCE exams due to a demonstrated financial need. • On November 1, we hope to make available an application for candidates to apply for these vouchers. • Students must have FAFSA and be Pell eligible.
DISCUSSION • How will we support Spring 2014 implementation of edTPA? • How will we support candidates who need to re-take one or more of the tasks in edTPA?
edTPA Support Proposal • edTPA Coordinator – Chris Widdall • Oversees the coordination of all efforts supporting candidates’ successful completion of the edTPA. • edTPA Advisors – One per school • Works with program coordinators to support the school’s candidates’ successful completion of the edTPA. • Planned edTPA supports/interventions • On-going workshops • Open Lab Hours/Tech Support • Re-take advisement seminars
