Warner School Seeks Public Comments During Education Reaccreditation Process

NCATE logoThe Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester is scheduled for a reaccreditation review by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), which will take place during the spring 2016 semester. Both NCATE and the University of Rochester recognize graduates, parents, schools, and community organizations have valuable perspectives on the quality of the programs that prepare teachers and other school personnel. Further, Federal regulations allow for public comment on the qualifications of institutions or programs under consideration for accreditation. Therefore, we invite interested parties to submit written testimony on the Warner School to:
 

National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
1140 19th Street, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
or by e-mail to callforcomments@ncate.org
 
All comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of our programs, 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 the University of Rochester for comment prior to the review, and absolutely no anonymous testimony will be considered. All letters should be received no later than Thursday, December 31, 2015.
