Committees at Work

Accreditation Appeal Committee

The Accreditation Appeal Committee hears appeal applications from teacher education providers who have been denied accreditation or who have been awarded accreditation with conditions.

The appeal process ensures pre-service programs and in-service courses are accredited fairly by allowing those who appeal to present new information and request to have the decision reviewed.

In 2013, a committee panel considered an appeal for the denial of an initial program of professional education. The appeal panel considered three requirements in the Accreditation Committee decision that led to the denial of accreditation. Based on its review, the appeal panel recommended that the program be granted initial accreditation with conditions.

This was the first accreditation appeal in the College’s history and the first use of the appeal section of the Accreditation of Teacher Education Programs Regulation. The committee noted several amendments to improve the appeal process and will consider any changes in 2014.
