Information for School Librianship Education Programs
All programs submitting program reports in Fall 2012 will be required to use the 2010 ALA/AASL Standards for Initial Programs for School Librarian Preparation. Programs submitting prior to Fall 2012 may use the 2010 standards or the 2003 standards.
Please Note: In July of 2013, NCATE and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) consolidated to form the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Under this consolidation, NCATE became a subsidiary of CAEP maintaining its recognition by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation for the purpose of maintaining the accreditation of educator preparation providers until such time as said providers come up for accreditation under CAEP.
