Title II requires states, in order to receive funds under the Higher Education Act (HEA), to have a procedure to identify and assist low-performing programs of teacher preparation within institutions of higher education.
At its November 2013 meeting, the Professional Educator Standards Board updated the definitions:
Following a regular continuing site visit, the Professional Education Standards Board may choose to grant programs limited approval. These programs will be considered "at risk of low-performing." A program designated "at risk" that fails to regain full approval following the next Board review shall be designated as "low-performing."
The Board "grandfathered" programs currently designated as at-risk until their next focus visit.
