NAAC Launches Retention Study
Directors of alternative certification programs are invited to take part in research being conducted by NAAC. This study examines rates at which non-traditional candidates stay in their initial teaching placements, move to other schools, and /or leave teaching, and explores reasons some teachers leave the profession. For more information, email NAAC Secretary Sheila Allen.

National Program Database
NAAC is collaborating with the Center for Career Changers to the Classroom to expand its online, searchable database providing information on certification pathways and programs in every state. This is a great tool for promoting programs and assuring that prospective teachers have access to the most up-to-date, state-by-state information available. More information here.
