The State accreditation process is designed to assure the public and the Legislature that our programs are effectively training school personnel to function in the credential areas for which they are being prepared. The Center for Teacher Innovation constantly engages our program personnel in the process of evaluation and program improvement. We monitor and review current research in the areas of coaching, mentoring, induction, and credentialing.
