The Department of Education and Teacher Preparation (DETP) at the College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA) is committed to transparency within and across the quality assurance system. DETP faculty consistently use data for continuous improvement initiatives. The leadership team, along with faculty and other relevant stakeholders, analyze multiple assessment measures on a continual basis for purposes including, but not limited to, evaluation of program effectiveness and impact, assessment of candidate performance, determination of employer, inductee, and completer satisfaction, and indication of candidate readiness to meet certification requirements as defined by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
Our programs are nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Education Preparation (CAEP). CAEP is a national accrediting agency that ensures education preparation units, such as the DETP, are offering quality programs and preparing pre-service teachers who meet federal- or state-mandated criteria prior to teaching in the classroom. As required by CAEP, we are committed to ensuring that EPP data is publicly available across all initial teacher certification programs.
