Comment by May 2 on Proposed Regulations
It is time again to make your voice heard in the latest request for comments on the U.S. Department of Education’s proposed regulations on teacher preparation programs. The deadline to submit comments is Monday, May 2.
On April 1, the Department released a supplemental notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) affecting the implementation of the proposed teacher preparation program regulations for “distance education” programs. The Department seeks additional feedback on questions raised about these programs in some of the nearly 5,000 comments received on the initial NPRM last year.
AACTE stands ready to help you respond to this request for comment!
- View a recording and slides from my recent webinar giving an overview of the proposed changes as well as highlighting potential concerns with the proposal. For example, it is unclear how the Department’s definition will be applied to programs where some classes are online and some are in a classroom.
- Download our template letter and customize it to fit the needs of your programs.
- Read my recent blogs for information on the “distance education” definition and a summary of the new NPRM, and see AACTE’s resource page on the regulations for background information.
