Teacher Preparation Report Cards

(HEA Title II, Section 205)


Quick Take: Institutions with teacher preparation programs and that receive federal student assistance will have increased reporting requirements on the Institutional Report Cards.  Most importantly, institutions will need to set annual goals regarding teacher development in shortage areas identified by their state, and provide assurances that they are working towards those goals.

However, there is an explicit prohibition against using this process to mandate any aspect of teacher education curriculum.
When Will This
Take Effect?
This provision went into effect when the bill was signed into law on August 14, 2008, meaning that the next institutional report card on teacher preparation programs must include this information.
Who on Campus May Need to Be Involved?  School or department of education teacher preparation office; institutional research
