* Special Information regarding Safety Net CSTs with 2019 deadline
  • If all requirements are met for certification on or before June 30, 2018, you may use one or more of the safety nets for your first Initial certificate, provided you apply for certification and meet all requirements for the issuance of that certificate on or before June 30, 2018.
  • If all requirements for certification are met between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, you may only use the CST safety net for your first Initial certificate, provided you apply for certification, and meet all requirements for the issuance of that certificate by June 30, 2019. You will not be able to use any other safety nets (e.g. EAS, edTPA) at that time.
