Accreditation for the University of Alaska Southeast School of Education has been renewed.
The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education this week notified UAS that its education school would be accredited without qualifications.
NCATE accredits 623 institutions nationwide that produce two-thirds of new teacher graduates each year. The U. S. Department of Education recognizes the organization as a specialized accrediting body for schools, colleges, and departments of education.
NCATE was founded in 1954 by the teaching profession and the states for excellence in teacher preparation and development.
The state of Alaska requires NCATE accreditation. UAS is scheduled for accreditation renewal in 2017.
