Blackboard is the official online platform of the New York City Department of Education Alternative Certification programs. You will visit this platform for key resources as well as special announcements designed to provide you with the strong foundation you need to hit the ground running! You will also find test preparation materials in the “My Courses” section.
You will use this system to access important resources related to your enrollment, testing, hiring and pre-service training (PST). Prior to the start of PST, you will also complete some online coursework on Blackboard.
