Each school and/or district reopening plan must ensure that all teachers hold valid and appropriate certificates for their teaching assignments except where otherwise allowable under the Commissioner’s regulations (e.g., incidental teaching) or Education Law.

  • LCSD’s intent is always to ensure that all teachers hold a valid and appropriate certificate for their teaching assignments. If a situation was to exist that LCSD was unable to achieve hiring a teacher to fill an assignment that the person was not certified in, LCSD would review what was allowable under the commissioner’s regulation or Education Law.
