HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University College of Education will undergo a spring accreditation review by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and is currently soliciting public comments on its program.

Federal regulations require that accrediting agencies allow for public comment on the qualifications of institutions or programs under consideration for continuing accreditation, said Shirley Jacob, interim dean of the college.

"Both NCATE and Southeastern recognize that graduates, parents, schools and community organizations have valuable perspectives on the quality of the programs that prepare teachers and other school personnel," Jacobs said. "We welcome their comments and suggestions."

Written testimony regarding the College of Education must be submitted in writing and sent to Board of Examiners, NCATE, 1140 19th St. NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036. Comments can also be emailed to

Comments should address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs at Southeastern and should specify the respondent's relationship, if any, to the institutions. Anonymous testimony will not be considered.

Letters of comment should be received no later than Wednesday, Dec. 31.
