NYS Register – Proposed Changes to Part 800 (Education)

By December 7, 2023No Comments

Greetings Everyone,

While the State DOH attempted to get the proposed changes to the Education Regs changed under an Emergency request, it was decided by the legislators to not move forward under the Emergency regulatory process. However, they still have posted the proposed changes under the normal channels. So, with that said, they proposed changes to the “education” regulations have been posted for the comment period. Please take a moment to look them over. I encourage everyone to send it your comments regarding them, especially if they are positive. Most of us generally don’t send it comments when they tend to agree with the changes, but ALL comments are welcome and encouraged. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Please note the NYS Register released proposed changes to Part 800.  Most relate to aligning with national educational standards, certification cycles (most notably moving to 4 year cycle, etc.)  They begin on PDF page 16 –

A much more granular (and easier to understand the exact working and impact of) the proposed changes are available at:
