Peru State College Due for NCATE Review,
Public Comment Period Begins
(Peru, Neb.) The School of Education at Peru State College is scheduled for a fall 2008 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 first accreditation or continuing accreditation.
Both NCATE and Peru State College 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 School of Education to:
Board of Examiners
2010 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite 500
Washington, DC 20036-1023
Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered at Peru State College, and should specify the respondent's relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to Peru State College for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
Letters of comment should be received no later than Monday, Sept. 1, 2008.
