Beginning July 1, 2022,  the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) must approve or recognize at least two accreditors that accredit teacher preparation programs and that are recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) (IC 20-28-3-1, (j), (3)). In response, IDOE has developed a draft agreement with AAQEP and draft revisions to the current CAEP agreement.

You are invited to review the draft agreements and provide feedback. The public comment period will close Monday, August 1, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Following the public comment period, comments and questions will be considered by the Indiana Department of Education.
