As reported by Tom Tharp this morning: The New York State Education Department is looking to expand English as a Second Language Services to meet the needs of migrant children. The Education Department is proposing to amend requirements for educators to create flexibility so they can more easily obtain supplementary certificates and supplementary bilingual extensions. Those extensions would enable more teachers to become available to support students who speak English as a Second Language. The amendment would give candidates the option to either complete the examination requirement for a certificate or the enrollment and educational requirements rather than needing both sets of requirements. The proposed rule would take effect tomorrow through august of next year, but it is expected to be presented to the board of regents for adoption as a permanent rule at its January meeting.
