DAHLONEGA, Ga. — The School of Education at North Georgia College and State University has earned full accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for its undergraduate- and graduate-level teacher training programs.

The national accreditation is required by the University System of Georgia and is part of a seven-year review process that included a site visit in February.

In their final report, reviewers called North Georgia's professional development communities (PDC) approach to teacher training a "notable program."

Reviewers commended faculty for their collaboration with pre-K through 12th-grade partners throughout the region, giving the highest rating possible in the area of best practices in service and noting, "The mission of the university is to provide outstanding instruction first and foremost."

North Georgia's PDC model puts university students and their professors in public schools in Lumpkin, Dawson, Forsyth and Hall counties in a two-year, full-immersion model that translates into at least 50 percent more field experience than is required for teacher certification.

North Georgia is one of 26 public and private schools in the state to carry NCATE accreditation for one or more of its teacher preparation programs.
