Regional Certification Officer

Administrative Service

The Sullivan BOCES serves as a regional office for the Office of Teaching Initiatives of the New York State Education Department. 

The regional office is authorized to evaluate credentials and make recommendations for provisional, permanent, initial, and professional certification. We offer certification services such as advice, interpretation of past and current regulations, transcript evaluation, and personal contact to administrators, prospective teachers, and certified teachers seeking certification in other areas or teachers seeking permanent or professional certification. This office should be utilized as a means to expedite the certification process for any school district or teacher in Sullivan County.

The Regional Certification Office processes all Temporary and Professional coaching licenses for Sullivan County School Districts. This includes providing athletic directors with up-to-date information as well as assisting individual coaches through the certification process.
