In January 2008, the State Board of Education approved in concept a new program approval process. The remodeling (previously referred to as re-visioning) process focuses on outcomes, rather than inputs, eliminates barriers and obstacles that do not ensure quality, and allows greater institutional flexibility based on increased rigor and accountability.
The remodeling process required educator preparation programs leading to undergraduate and graduate teacher licenses to align with the State Board adopted North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards and appropriate evaluation instruments. Educator preparation programs leading to a school administrator – principal license were remodeled to align with the State Board adopted North Carolina Standards for School Executives and the appropriate evaluation instrument.
IHEs seeking State Board approval for new teacher or school executive programs must submit electronic blueprints to the Director of Educator Preparation following the guidelines below.
