New York State Teacher Center History

New York鈥檚 Teacher Resource and Computer Training Centers were established by the New York State Legislature in 1984 underEducation Law 316.听 The initial appropriation of $3.5 million established 44 Teacher Centers throughout the State. The Legislature continues to approve Teacher Center funding through 2017-18, with an appropriation of $20 million, supporting 126 Teacher Centers, 6 Regional Networks, 3 Statewide Committees and 2 Statewide Projects. Appropriations for Teacher Centers are not automatically part of the State budget and are reviewed annually. One of the unique characteristics of Teacher Centers is that they are operated by a board, the majority of which are composed of elementary and secondary school teachers served by the center.

Teacher Centers have led the听integration of technology听into curriculum and instruction in New York State. They have collaborated with teachers, BOCES, districts, schools, institutions of higher education, and other education stakeholders, including several business agreements, to provide over 44,000 professional development opportunities every year, many aligned with and/or directly supporting state initiatives and local school improvement goals.
