Support for Revision of Prof Studies
 

Dear Virginia Board of Education,

Thank you for this opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed revisions to the Regulations Governing the Review and Approval of Education Programs in Virginia

The faculty and staff of Virginia Wesleyan College support the revision of the professional studies requirements addressed in 8VAC20-542-90 and 8VAC20-542-140 regarding the revised competencies for professional studies, and strongly support the revision to 8VAC20-542-40 indicated in #3, b, which more clearly indicates “a minimum of 10 weeks” of supervised “full time teaching” with “at least 150 clock hours spend in direct teaching.”  This is much more clearly defined than in the Amended 2011 Regulations.
