How to Temporarily Pause Professional Certification
If you are not employed in a position that requires NY teacher certification, then you may change your registration status to “Inactive” in TEACH.
While your registration is inactive, you are not responsible to accrue Continuing Education hours.
Once you are employed in a position that requires NY teacher certification, you will need to change your status back to “Active”.
Please follow the instructions below:
Log in to your Teach Account
At the top of the page, click on “To change your registration status click here”
Click on “Next”
Select “I would like to register as inactive. I am currently not practicing in an applicable school”
Click on “Submit”
