(More information on TSRV and ePMF is available below.)

TAA Applications

Teacher Student Roster Verification Application

This system is used to verify district/BOCES/charter school reported roster data for teachers and principals outside of NYC. More information...
Please watch our TAA Video Walkthrough for information on how to view your TSR report. For more information on the Teacher Student Roster Verification Report tool, visit the IRS Teacher/Staff Data Page.

If you identify inaccurate data within the report we ask that you work with your District Data Coordinator to correct the errors in your Student Management System.


The electronic Personnel Master File, ePMF, collects data submitted by teachers such as the sections they teach, including class assignment, grade level taught, and years teaching.
More information...
When you login to TAA you will see a Your ePMF for ____ button for the district(s) you work in. These button(s) allow you to access your ePMF form for the indicated district. If you work in multiple districts you must complete an ePMF form for each district that employs you.

If you need more information or help filling out your ePMF form, you can visit our Help page to browse through the frequently asked questions. All ePMF forms will be automatically saved when clicking the "Save" button at the bottom of the form. The "Submit" button will finalize your form for district review. Teachers will have through January/February of the new school year to complete and correct their ePMF information. Earlier deadlines may be established at the local level. Your superintendent will review ePMF data before verifying data to NYSED.

For guidance, see the IRS Teacher/Staff Data Page.
New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) teachers and principals will use alternate data verification processes and reports. More information...
NYCDOE teachers and principals will have access to an online tool, STARS Classroom, to review and update class list information. If NYCDOE teachers have questions about this process, they should contact their principals or data specialists in their school or network. NYC teachers and principals may also contact AdvanceSupport@schools.nyc.gov with questions.
