This committee typically meets once monthly during the academic year, with additional meetings as needed.  Students are welcome to join this committee. Those pursuing teaching certification are encouraged to attend formal and final reviews of teaching candidates to learn more about the standards by which the committee assesses candidates’ readiness for student-teaching and for recommendation to the Maine Department of Education for certification.


The committee consists of COA students, staff, and faculty as well as school and community partners from local elementary and high schools and the Jackson Lab.
