K.A.R. 91-1-70a

This regulation adopts by reference the National Council on the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards and procedures for accrediting of teacher education units in Kansas.  The two national accrediting entities, NCATE and Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) combined to form one new entity called the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  The regulation amendments accommodate this change from NCATE to CAEP standards.  Adoption of this amendment will have minimal if no economic impact on teacher preparation institutions, school districts or individuals.

K.A.R. 91-1-208

An amendment requires license application forms to include a completed Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry release.  According to Kansas law a substantiated finding of abuse and/or neglect prohibits any person listed on the Child Abuse and Neglect Registry from working, residing, or volunteering in a child care home or facility regulated by Kansas Dept. of Health and Environment.  This amendment will allow KSDE to search the Child Abuse and Neglect Registry to find out if the Kansas State Department for Children and Families (DCF) has substantiated any such claim against a licensee.  Adoption of this amendment will have no economic impact on teacher preparation institutions, school districts or individuals.  License applications will include a release statement.      

K.A.R. 91-1-221

Revoked due to lack of need and usage. 

 K.A.R. 91-1-235

An amendment formalizes a program completion requirement that has been in practice since 2008 to require a pre-service candidate work sample to be completed during the initial teacher preparation program.  Adoption of this amendment will have minimal if no economic impact on teacher preparation institutions, school districts or individuals as this is a current practice during pre-service.
