NYSUT successfully convinced SED to make some big changes. As long as the teacher has three years teaching by June 30th2020, they will now have three years to take the necessary workshops. Additionally, they will only need to make a one-time payment of $100.00 no matter how many SOCE subject areas are needed. Anyone who paid more than $100 will be refunded.
This is certainly a notable victory that Our Union was able to achieve for Our Members, and will make matters much more manageable for those impacted.
