The Network for Transforming Educator Preparation comprises seven states that have joined together to transform educator preparation and entry systems into the profession. The seven states, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Washington commit to implementing ten policy recommendations from CCSSO's report, Our Responsibility, Our Promise: Transforming Educator Preparation and Entry into the Profession. Mary-Dean Barringer directs this project. Read Mary-Dean's Announcement blog and the NTEP PRESS RELEASE for detailed info.

Within this initiative, states partner with 17 organizations that include a host of educators, preparation programs, and PK-12 schools to change policies and practices. This two-year NTEP project covers three policy initiatives:

1. work to create coherent systems,

2. support and assess the quality of educator preparation programs,

3. set rigorous standards for those who obtain an initial license to teach or lead. 

This results-oriented project will yield valuable information on how states and stake holders can partner to transform educator preparation. NTEP will share the tools, knowledge, policies and other resources created with the larger SCEE membership. So, please check the preparation page and file cabinet often for access to these useful materials!

NOTE: Our Responsibility, Our Promise, CCSSO's report, was written by the Task Force on Educator Preparation and Entry into the Profession. The task force is made up of current and former chiefs who are members of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) with input from our partners at the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) and the National Governors Association (NGA).
