CEO change for schools and districts

At the end of every school year, schools and districts need to review all administrative positions for their institutional location(s) on file in the NYSED public online system, SEDREF - Core Information and SED Institutions. You can search for your institutional location(s) by part of the location name with % as a wildcard or by the BEDS code.

All administrative accounts are automatically created and entitled to NYSED web applications based on what is currently on file in SEDREF - Core Information and SED Institutions for your institutional location(s).

 

Please click on the blue help button located in the bottom right of your screen. Enter your full name, email address and the information that you are requesting to be updated. Please include the term "sedref update" and your institution's BEDS code in the section of the How can we help you?* for faster ticket assignment to the correct content area.
