Certification, Incidental Teaching and Substitute Teaching – Required Notices

Each school and/or district reopening plan must ensure that all teachers hold valid and appropriate certificates for their teaching assignments except where otherwise allowable under the Commissioner’s regulations (e.g., incidental teaching) or Education Law.

Fayetteville-Manlius has always hired, and expects to continue hiring, only New York state certificated individuals. If there is a shortage of certified teachers, the district will follow the appropriate protocols established by the state Education Department for such circumstances.
