The public demands accountability from everyone involved in education. Although much of the recent emphasis has been on K-12 education, teacher preparation has also been the subject of legislative initiatives.

Through the publication of annual reports, Ball State provides transparency regarding performance at the two university-affiliated public schools, Burris Laboratory School and the Indiana Academy, and on how well it prepares college students for teaching careers.

The governing body of each public school corporation in the state must publish an annual performance report. This report includes benchmarks and indicators of performance developed and revised by the state superintendent and the Indiana State Board of Education, and data for each of the preceding three years. The reports are compiled by the IDOE for publication.

Ball State University is the governing body for both Burris and Indiana Academy.

Ball State University’s Educator Preparation Provider (EPP) is accredited through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Continuous Improvement (CI) model.

Ball State’s previous visit from NCATE accreditors occurred in spring 2011, and the university earned full accreditation for seven years. Our next visit will occur in spring 2018, with our Unit Self-Study and exhibits submitted in spring 2017.

The resource below can help faculty and staff across the EPP prepare for the next accreditation cycle.
