NEW YORK STATE TEACHER'S CENTER (NYSTC)
How did NYSTC begin?
In 1984, thanks to the lobbying efforts of NYSUT, Teacher Resource and Computer Training Centers (now called NYS Teacher Centers) were established and funded by the New York State Legislature under Education Law 316 (link to pdf document). This law called for the provision of systematic, ongoing professional education services to New York State teachers. The enabling legislation introduced an innovative approach to professional learning across the state and created a unique relationship between Teacher Centers and schools. There were 44 Teacher Centers that opened that first year.
All Teacher Centers have their own unique beginnings and characteristics. The organizational structures, programs, and services of Teacher Centers reflect the standards for professional development. Not all Teacher Centers operate in exactly the same fashion, but all are governed by a Policy Board. The Policy Board is comprised of members from the Center’s district(s). This includes teachers, administrators, parents, higher education representatives, business representatives and community members. However, the Policy Board must always be at least 51% teachers, which upholds our efforts to personalize programs to meet the local professional learning needs of classroom teachers.
NEW YORK STATE UNITED TEACHERS (NYSUT)
Who We Are
NYSUT is more than 600,000 people who work in, or are retired from, New York's schools, colleges, and healthcare facilities. We are classroom teachers, college and university faculty and professional staff, school bus drivers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, teacher assistants and aides, nurses and healthcare technicians.
NYSUT is a federation of more than 1,200 local unions, each representing its own members. We are affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA). We are also part of organized labor - the AFL-CIO - and of Education International, with more than 20 million members world wide.
We range in size from tiny locals of fewer than 10 members to the United Federation of Teachers, which represents more than 140,000 teachers and other school employees in New York City.
We are dedicated to improving not only our working conditions, but also our professions. We're united in a common commitment to improve the quality of education and healthcare for the people of New York.
NYSUT is a grassroots organization. We elect the people who lead our local unions and or state and national affiliates. We elect delegates to a state convention - the Representative Assembly - who discuss issues and set policy that determines the programs and services that NYSUT provides us.
Our NYSUT officers, elected by the Representative Assembly, oversee a professional staff that carries out the union's business. The convention delegates also elect a Board Of Directors, which determines policy between conventions.
NYSUT® is a federally registered service mark of the New York State United Teachers.
