EPE Distance Education Program Forms (October 2021)
These are the new forms released by NYSED AEPP Office for teachers certified for NYSED Distance Education through attendance at a traditional RAEN training for these NYSED programs.  Note, you must download the document first before attempting to "fill" the fillable fields or they risk losing their data.  AEPP requires that programs use these forms exactly as issued.  No alterations may be made to the forms.  The certification training CANNOT be turnkeyed - only those teachers who have attended and completed the RAEN sponsored training may deliver Distance Learning Education to students in their program.
