North Carolina Approved Teacher Education Programs.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Personnel Services Area.
On May 7, 1988, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction was awarded State recognition by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). This publication presents the current approval status of the 46 colleges and universities in North Carolina (both public and nonpublic institutions) that offer programs leading to initial and advanced-level licensure. Information on the current status of two teacher education consortia which offer teacher education programs is also included. An introduction outlines several aspects of the approval process under the headings: multiple program approval criteria; program approval process; full approval; full approval with stipulation(s); provisional approval; denial of approval; and related policies such as"add-on,""endorsement," and "lateral entry." Appendixes provide names of presidents or chancellors, licensure officers, and directors of student teachers in North Carolina teacher preparation institutions; North Carolina professional certification testing requirements; North Carolina reciprocity plans; a copy of a lateral entry certification request; certification codes and interpretations; and the North Carolina protocol for NCATE and State Department of Public Instruction visits.
