Roster Verification


    Certified teaching personnel are required to verifying their ePMF (electronic Personnel Master File), online at the Teacher Access and Authorization (TAA) system.  If you’re not sure if you should be participating in this process, please read this FAQ document, then contact me if necessary.

     -If you do not have a TAA account please use the TAA User Guide for instructions on creating an account.  Account creation instructions start on page 26 of the guide.

    -To create your TAA account you will need the following items;

    • The last four digits of your Social Security Number
    • Your date of birth
    • Your 7 Digit TEACH ID which can be found at this Link or by emailing me.

    If you need to reset your account please use the instructions starting on page 32 of the TAA User Guide.  This site is run by NYSED and I cannot reset your password.

     The Verification window is open until November 5th  - READ BELOW REGARDING REPORTING

    -When entering your assignment information, please note that your student counts (titled “Registration” on the form”) must be as of 10/3/2018 (BEDS Day).  Teachers who teach multiple sections of the same course must not combine registration numbers. Report each section separately and report the appropriate number of students for each section.

    Report all the courses you teach using the current enrollment numbers.  Include both odd and even day classes, reporting them as separate sections.  Also, include your fall and spring classes with current enrollments.

    -Questions regarding your specific assignment code should be directed to your building principal. A full listing of assignment codes can be found here.

      -How to access your ePMF (electronic Personnel Master File) Please use page 41 of the TAA User Guide for reference.  If you find incorrect data contact me ASAP.


    -During the 2018-19 school year, the only courses viewable in TAA will be for those teachers providing instruction in grades 3-8 ELA and Math and Math Regents courses as these are the only courses currently used for generating growth scores. These teachers will have to review this roster data towards the end of winter in addition to completing an ePMF (BEDS) form in the fall.  The exact time frame for roster verification has not been set yet by the State.

    -Any other questions you may have should be answered in the attached manual.  If not, please feel free to reach out to me.
