Accreditation and Educator Preparation

Chapter 58 Program Standards Review

Monday, March 24, 2014, 9:51 am

The Montana Board of Public Education has charged the Office of Public Instruction with the revision of the Administrative Rules of Montana, Chapter 58, Professional Educator Preparation Programs Standards (PEPPS). These standards identify what a teacher leaving the university program should know and be able to do in their field.

Through the use of digital on line tools, over 135 colleagues from the Montana education community are working on draft revisions. The draft revisions will be posted to the OPI web page for public comment as they are completed.
