This week the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) waived the edTPA requirement for those currently seeking a Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing (CEAS) or those moving from a Certificate of Eligibility (CE) to a standard certificate.
The waiver is for candidates who apply for certification on or after April 28, 2020, and expires on Sept. 1, 2020, or when the public health emergency is lifted, whichever is earlier.
The waiver applies to the following teachers:
Teachers who have already submitted the edTPA but were unsuccessful in one or more of the sections of the assessment, are eligible for the waiver and do not need to resubmit.
Candidates seeking a refund of their fees should refer to the current edTPA refund policy.
