Fostering collaborative efforts to integrate technologies in instruction
NYSCATE has drawn strength and support from its talented and diverse membership since 1965. With a current membership of over 29,000 members, all regions of the state are represented in our community teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, consultants and the business community. NYSCATE prides itself on bringing people together to learn and grow from each other. This is true in a physical sense, such as a conference or regional event, as well as virtually, with the incredible expertise and generosity of our members. If we can help in any way, simply reach out and let us know.
Together, we will all get through this.
