Description

This poster explains the collaboration between a University center, state office of education, and local school districts to provide training resulting in an early childhood special education license. The Early Childhood Alternative Teacher Preparation program (ECATP) delivers coursework via distance technology. Local district coordinators commit to providing a coach for each student and serve on the advisory board. The collaboration assists rural areas to access licensed early childhood teachers.
