CST Safety Net Option

Multi-Subject CST (Grade 7 - Grade 12) - Safety Net for Part Two: Mathematics

The Board of Regents at the January 2016 meeting created a Safety Net for Candidates who take and fail Part Two: Mathematics of the new Multi-Subject: Secondary Teachers Grade 7 - Grade 12 Content Specialty Test which is required for Students with Disabilities – Grades 7-12 - Generalist Teacher Certification.    Here is the link to the Regents item: http://www.regents.nysed.gov/common/regents/files/116hea3.pdf

In order to be eligible for the safety net, a candidate must pass Part One (Literacy and English Language Arts) and Part Three (Arts and Sciences) of the Multi-Subject: Secondary Teachers Grade 7 - Grade 12 CST then take and fail Part Two (Mathematics) of the CST and then complete a mathematics tutorial that will be provided to candidates who qualify.  The tutorial is intended to review mathematics lessons aligned to the New York State Learning Standards for mathematics comparable to the content on Part Two of the Multi-Subject: Secondary Teachers Grade 7 - Grade 12 test. The tutorial also prompts candidates to answer certain questions to review the skills needed to prepare them for the math portion of the Multi-Subject: Secondary Teachers Grade 7 - Grade 12.   

Upon completion of the mathematics tutorial, candidates then submit an attestation form that must be completed by the higher education institution they attended, attesting that they have completed at least one college mathematics course (3 semester hours) and received a grade of 3.0 or higher or the substantial equivalent in that course. The attestation must be signed by the Dean, Chief Academic Officer, or the substantial equivalent at the college/university certifying that the candidate attended the college/university, and has satisfactorily completed comparable mathematics coursework at such college/university.

Note: Any exam requirement to be satisfied by one of the safety nets must be satisfied on or before June 30, 2016. For example, a candidate who has failed both the edTPA and the ALST may use both applicable safety nets. However, all the requirements for the edTPA Safety Net and the ALST Safety Net must be met on or before June 30, 2016; the candidate will then have one additional year, until June 30, 2017, to complete all other requirements (example: coursework; DASA training).
