Teacher Education program first to meet new standards

  • Missouri’s Southern’s Teacher Education Department is the first program in the Show-Me state to meet newer, tougher standards for re-accreditation by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

    A CAEP team started its review of the program at MSSU last fall by making an on-site visit to MSSU.  The reviewers visited with stakeholders in the teacher preparation program – area school administrators, teachers, graduates, current students and campus personnel.

    This visit was a joint accreditation review by CAEP and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The program also received full approval from DESE to continue to offer certification programs.

    Dr. Deborah Brown, dean of the School of Education, says being the first in the state to meet these vigorous, more robust standards “is a big deal, and we are very proud of all those involved with making this a great program. It takes a team effort to prepare the best possible teacher for the students in the classrooms of the region.”
