Frequently asked questions
- Why does my CE certificate not have my CTLE information? You must download your CTLE certificate from your edWeb member homepage.
- Why does my CTLE certificate not include my social security number? For privacy reasons, edWeb does not ask for social security numbers and NYSED is not requiring that we provide it.
- Why does my CTLE certificate include my birth month and date, but not my birth year? For privacy reasons, edWeb does not collect birthdate/year and NYSED is not requiring that we provide it.
- When will my CTLE hours be uploaded to NYSED? NYSED is not ready to accept this information yet, and has not given us a date when they will be ready.
- Can do all of my CTLE hours with edWeb? You need anywhere between 15 and 50 percent of your training in Language Acquisition for English Language Learners, depending on the certificate you hold. You can search for edWeb ELL/ESL Language Acquisition offerings here. Additionally, sometimes employers have requirements and limits on the types of CTLE or professional development you must complete as a condition of your employment or a contractual obligation. You should consider those things and work with your district or employer for guidance.
