[Repealed] Regulations Governing the Review and Approval of Education Programs in Virginia [8 VAC 20 ‑ 542]
Promulgate new regulations to align with state and federal laws and regulations
General Information
Action Summary During recent years, national, state, and local educators as well as members of the general public have placed increased emphasis on the need to ensure in our nation’s schools the provision of highly qualified teachers who in turn make a positive impact on prek-12 student achievement. Federal legislation such as the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the 1998 Reauthorization of the Title II Higher Education Act (Title II HEA) clearly express the need for increased accountability from states and institutions of higher education in the preparation, certification, and licensure of teachers and other school personnel.
