The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is continuing its effort to strengthen data collection, sharing and reporting on Educator Preparation Programs by progressing out of the first year of a 2 year mandatory data collection pilot.

In order to advance the work of educator preparation programs statewide, the Partnership for Educator Preparation (PEP), a steering committee consisting of a diverse team of stakeholders representing the state, will continue to provide input and guidance in the design and content of ISBE’s revised accountability and program improvement system for teacher preparation.

The goal of this new system is to ensure that all novice teachers in Illinois are ready to support student learning upon entering the classroom, and that data is used as a tool for continuous improvement to strengthen teacher preparation statewide.​​
