The Office of Certification has regained access to the human resources systems, but efforts to fully restore the application are still in progress.  While the system restoration continues, there are some services and requests the Office of Certification can resume.  As they become available, updates will be posted on the News Hub.

Office of Certification staff is available to answer certification questions and receive credentials such as electronic transcripts, ETS score reports, and certification requests.  MSDE certificate renewals and endorsements have resumed as normal.
