As you know, your Title II reports are due April 30th. More than 50% of you have already logged in to the Title II reporting system. Progress! If you have not already logged in to the system, or you haven’t logged in recently, we encourage you to go ahead and begin to do so.
Patti Coultas suggested that we bring the issue of program completer vs enrolled candidates to your attention this week. Specifically, the Title II folks provide the following clarification:
For purposes of this data collection, an individual cannot be classified as both enrolled and as a program completer at the same time. An enrolled individual is not a program completer. Once an individual has met all the requirements of a state approved teacher preparation program and becomes a program completer, the individual is no longer classified as enrolled.
In addition, only individuals enrolled in or completing teacher preparation programs leading to initial teacher certification or licensure should be counted. Currently licensed teachers seeking additional certification or endorsements, or individuals in programs for administration, counseling, speech /language pathology, social work or other support roles, should not be included.
Still have questions? Don’t forget you can participate in a webinar on April 15 at 2:00pm Eastern, or April 17 at 11am Eastern. You should have received directions from Westat already.
