New York State Code of Ethics for Educators

The Code of Ethics [pdf] is a public statement by educators that sets clear expectations and principles to guide practice and inspire professional excellence. Educators believe a commonly held set of principles can assist in the individual exercise of professional judgment. This Code speaks to the core values of the profession. The term educator means all educators serving New York schools in positions requiring a certificate, including classroom teachers, school leaders, and pupil personnel service providers.
