Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accredited programs

Annual Program Performance Reports (APPRs) is an accountability system created by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) to hold state-approved teacher education programs accountable for producing graduates with the competencies and skills necessary to achieve state education goals. The accountability system includes evidence of teacher preparation program completers’ performance measured by six outcome-based performance metrics.

The six-performance metrics, legislatively mandated in section 1004.04, Florida Statutes, as of July 1, 2013, include: placement rate, retention rate, student performance on statewide assessments, student performance by subgroups, teacher evaluation results and critical teacher shortage production. The Annual Program Performance Report provides information related to the progress and performance of teacher preparation programs in achieving the mission of Florida’s educational system.

As part of the continuous improvement requirements for FDOE certification and CAEP accreditation, the Office of Assessment and Accreditation for the School of Education is continuously ensuring that faculty and students are engaged with the most recent standards and competencies, and that faculty members have the data they need to review course content and make program changes.

Bethune-Cookman University’s’  School of Education currently has nine programs approved by the FDOE.  In addition, eight of those programs are accredited by CAEP.
