SPCS Education Update

In early February, the Teacher Education Program and Educational Leadership and Policy Studies program welcomed a team from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to conduct a site visit with our faculty, students, staff, alumni, P-12 school partners, and community partners.

During the visit, the CAEP and VDOE team interviewed these constituencies to verify and understand our program’s processes, impact, and partnerships in the final stage of our seven-year accreditation cycle.

Though the official CAEP and VDOE team findings are not public until this summer, we were extremely pleased with the engagement, questions, and feedback provided during the site visit.

For all who participated in the CAEP site visit, the Graduate Education program wishes to thank you for your support and time engaging in the accreditation process. Your support of our programs and students clearly improves and strengthens our education programs.
