The CTC is moving forward with recommendations of its EL Authorizations Advisory Panel and is interested in input from those in the field that work directly with EL students. The have posted a field survey for the various sets of Educator Preparation Standards last month but have extended the timeline hoping for additional feedback. We would very much appreciate it if you could encourage educators to review the sets of standards of the positions for which they are most informed.

As you see below, recommendations were made in 5 different areas of educator preparation. Feedback is encouraged so please take advantage of this opportunity. Thanks. Jeff Provide Feedback on Proposed Standards Updates. The Commission is seeking input from stakeholders regarding proposed changes/updates to the educator preparation standards as recommended by the English Learner Authorizations Advisory Panel.
