The Committee on Accreditation's Annual Accreditation Report to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, 2016-2017
California Commission on Teacher Credentialing
The Commission on Teacher Credentialing's current "Accreditation Framework" was adopted in 2006. The accreditation system is the primary means by which the Commission ensures quality in educator preparation in California. The system is designed as a 7 year cycle comprised of three major components or activities: (1) biennial reports; (2) program assessment; and (3) site visits. The Commission is assisted in the implementation of the accreditation system by the Committee on Accreditation (COA). While the Commission sets policy for accreditation, the COA implements the accreditation system and makes accreditation decisions for institutions offering educator preparation in California. This report presents information about the accreditation system, the COA decisions, and the three major components for the academic year 2016-17. The report is organized into three sections: (1) Accomplishment of the Committee's Work Plan in 2016-17; (2) Summary of Accreditation Activities, 2016-17; and (3) Proposed Work Plan for the Committee in 2017-18. Each section addresses the purposes of the accreditation system: ensure accountability, ensure high quality programs, ensure adherence to standards, and foster ongoing improvement.
