Public Announcement of NCATE Review for Spring 2006

Athens, W.Va.-Concord University is scheduled for a winter 2006 accreditation review by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Federal regulations require that accrediting agencies allow for public comment on the qualifications of institutions or programs under consideration for initial or continuing accreditation.

Both NCATE and Concord University recognize that graduates, parents, schools and community organizations have valuable perspectives on the quality of the programs that prepare teachers and other school personnel. We invite interested parties to submit written testimony on the Teacher Education Program at Concord University.

Send comments to: Board of Examiners, NCATE, 2010 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC, 20036-1023.

Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered at Concord University, and should specify the respondent’s relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e. graduate, present or former faculty member, employee of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to Concord University for comment prior to review. No anonymous or oral testimony will be considered.

Letters of comment should be received by November 25, 2005.
