NYSAIS aims to build and sustain a vibrant, state-wide professional learning network that creates a culture of professional growth that acts as the foundation for teaching, learning, and collaboration in and between member schools. In order to communicate these relevant, timely, and engaging professional development opportunities to your school community, we need accurate and updated information about your staff.
The best way to ensure that your faculty and staff receive the appropriate professional learning emails is by adding them to a position that best meets their role in your school, as well as continually reviewing the list to ensure its accuracy. Below are two examples illustrating how to add users to a position correctly.
NO Professional Learning emails, Listserv Access, or Groups

Profile and Pictures
Our website has averaged nearly two million pageviews over the last three years, with many users viewing individual school profiles in the Schools section. By default, if your school has not uploaded an image, a stock photo is inserted anytime your school shows up in search results. By adding a photo, you can also request to have your school featured on the NYSAIS homepage.
