Only 12 students graduated from the M.Ed.-Special Education program at the University of Guam during its first 20 years. In the spring of 2007, with technical assistance from The Monarch Center, the University of Guam School of Education in partnership with the Guam Department of Education and the Guam Commission on Educator Certification began a major program improvement effort. Designed to provide strong support to a diverse student population, the new program uses an accelerated cohort model composed of practicing and experienced teachers. Since the program redesign, 130 students have graduated. Current outcomes suggest that the benefits of this personnel preparation program extend beyond students with disabilities on Guam to include the larger Guam community.
