Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
This handbook contains regulations (effective May 1982) for teacher certification and for accreditation and approval of teacher preparation programs in Kansas. Under the approved approach for program accreditation, a teacher education institution submits its program for approval to the Kansas State Board of Education. Once the program is approved, its graduates are eligible to be certified to teach in elementary or secondary schools. The first area covered in this handbook includes procedures and requirements for applying for initial teacher certification, renewal of teacher certification, and emergency substitute teacher certification. These procedures are outlined in three sections. The next section contains certification requirements for all school personnel, including administrators, teachers, health personnnel, and special educators. The third section lists the regulations for accrediting teacher education institutions and approving teacher education programs. In addition to general program approval requirements, standards for accrediting various curricula in which teachers may specialize are covered. The last section presents regulations governing accreditation of advanced programs for school personnel. A list of accredited colleges and universities in Kansas is appended. (FG)
