8VAC20-543-30. Application for new education endorsement programs.
 

The Deans and Directors of Virginia’s Colleges of Teacher Education met on October 8th, 2015 at the VACTE Fall Conference at Roanoke College to discuss the new regulations for approved programs.  The suggestions being posted by the President of this organization are a result of this meeting.  

With the new regulations for education programs, the matrices and other items for new programs should not be required.  Suggestions as an alternative from this group included combining the reporting of revisions to programs with the Biennial Report and in a simpler format.
