Pennsylvania's Approach to the Competency Certification of Educational Professional Staff. Working Paper.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
This document describes the Pennsylvania Competency-Based Teacher Education (PaCBTE) program and the Pennsylvania Competency-Assessment Certification (PaCAC) program and their relationship to teacher certification. The PaCBTE program is described as the state department of education's effort to assist colleges and universities in the transition to competency-based teacher education (CBTE) programs, wherein the students will demonstrate role competence and be endorsed for department of education certification on the results of the institution's competency evaluation process. The PaCBTE program extends the present state teacher certification requirements by making the preparing institution accountable for the calling-out, demonstration, and verification of role competencies of the candidates the institution recommends for state certification. The PaCAC program services applicants (a) who are not prepared via state department of education's CBTE programs, (b) who are not entitled to certification under existing interstate agreements in certification reciprocity, and (c) who appeal to the Secretary of Education challenging their preparing institution's competency verification component and seek an alternative verification as a matter of due process. Included are a list of competencies, guidelines, and strategies. (JA)
