TEACH Self Registration
Starting on July 2016, all permanently or professionally certified teachers and Level III teaching assistants working in public schools (those certified before 2004) are required to register with the State Education Department. This new one-time requirement also affects retired teachers who want to maintain their certification.
Registering online is a way of verifying your identity and alerting the state that you wish to keep your teaching certificate active. There is no fee associated with registration.
