Educator Preparation Programs

Educator Preparation Programs

Maine higher education units that have approved educator preparation programs are expected to be dynamic, strive for continuous improvement and utilize the outcomes of new knowledge, practices and technologies. These schools are expected to be involved in a process in which faculty and administrators, in collaboration with practitioners, are thinking and talking about the preparation of teachers and other educators. Institutions are expected to be committed to assuring that teacher candidates are prepared with the knowledge and skills necessary to assist Maine students. For this reason, program approval must be initially conducted and periodically revisited.
