Teacher, Leader, and Certified Personnel- TEACH IDs

The Office of Teaching Initiatives (OTI) vs. The Office of Information and Reporting Services (IRS)

The Office of Teaching Initiatives provides support to educators with:

• TEACH IDs;

• TEACH accounts (the TEACH System);

• Teacher certification; and

• Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirements.

The Office of Information and Reporting Services is responsible for:

• Collecting and reporting data for school districts, public schools, charter schools, and nonpublic schools in NYS;

• The Teacher Access and Authorization System (TAA- ePMF and Teacher Student Roster Verification Application (TSRV)); and

• Other various data collection systems and reports.

 

In order to access the Teacher Access and Authorization System (TAA), an educator must have a TEACH ID from OTI, IRS does not create or provide TEACH IDs. Additionally, IRS does not have access to the TEACH System and OTI does not have access to the TAA System.

 

If a teacher, leader or other certified school personnel has gained NYS certification since 1982, there will be a TEACH account. The person may or may not have a user ID and password to access their TEACH account.

If a teacher, leader or other certified school personnel gained NYS certification prior to 1983, the person may or may not have a TEACH account. If the person does have a TEACH account, the person may or may not have a user ID and password to access their TEACH account.

If a teacher, leader or other certified school personnel applied for certification on or after July 1, 2006, the person will have a TEACH account and a user ID and password to access their TEACH account.

If a teacher, leader or other certified school personnel applied for certification prior to July 1, 2006, the person may have created a user ID and password to access their TEACH account.
