Teacher/Staff Data

The New York State Education Department’s Office of Information and Reporting Services (IRS) collects and reports data for approximately 200,000 New York State teachers and 30,000 non-teaching professionals. Data are collected to meet State and federal reporting requirements and, when available, reported in the New York State Report Cards and in the Statistical profiles. Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, all course data will be reported to IRS using the Student Information Repository System (SIRS).  The office is no longer using the Teacher Access and Authorization (TAA) application or collecting BEDS data from teachers.
