State Board Provisionally Approves UAA Early Childhood Education Program

March 5, 2022

The State Board of Education and Early Development recently provided provisional approval of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) School of Education’s Early Childhood Education teacher preparation program.

The provisional approval includes four conditions: the establishment of an advisory committee, annual updates on its progress toward CAEP accreditation, written assurance to the board that UAA will freeze enrollment in the program if denied NAEYC accreditation during the provisional approval period, and written assurance from UAA and the UA Board of Regents that students enrolled in the provisionally approved program will have the opportunity to complete their program at UAA and be recommended for licensure if UAA is denied either NAEYC or CAEP accreditation.
