I am pleased to announce that the new Online 2013-2014 NYS Albert Shanker Grant Program application is now available. Please see our Web site at http://www.highered.nysed.gov/tcert/resteachers/albertshanker.html to view the updated information page and the online application.
I know this has been a long time coming, but I think that it will be worth the wait. The new application will cut out the all of the time spent dealing with incomplete applications and problems finding applicants in the teacher certification database.
I encourage all of you to forward this link out to all of your contacts so that the regional people are aware of the news.
As with anything new, there may be some initial problems. Please do not hesitate to email me if you hear of any issues with the application.
Thank you all for your patience and support.
