Teacher Access and Authorization (TAA)
First Time Users
To access TAA, users need to create an account. Once you create an account you will have access
to both the Teacher Student Roster Verification (TSRV) system and the electronic Personnel Master File (ePMF)
(More information on TSRV and ePMF is available below.)
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.

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.
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.
