CQTL Advisory Group

The group meets four times per year in order for partners to collaborate on new initiatives, strategies, and ideas for continuous improvement of teacher candidate preparations. Through these regular collaborations, the Advisory Committee discusses changes to the educator preparatory programs, analyzes data, and solicits input from P-12 educators, administrators and other community stakeholders for the purpose of continuous reflection and improvement of policies, procedures and programs related to effective teacher candidate preparation.
