ACU accredited for educator preparation


For Immediate Release
Oct. 6, 1999

Abilene Christian University recently received the rating of "accredited" from the State Board for Educator Certification.

Accreditation ratings are based on performance standards established by the Board and are issued annually to each educator preparation program in Texas.

As required by the Texas Education Code, the Board has implemented a rigorous performance-based accountability system over the past two years.

The ratings are determined by the performance of the program's candidates on the assessments required for certification. In order to be rated "accredited," a program must achieve a 70 percent first-year pass rate or an 80 percent cumulative pass rate.
