Council on Preparation of Teachers and School Personnel (COPTSP)

The Council on Preparation of teachers and School Personnel (COPTSP) is the advisory policy committee for FHSU teacher education programs. It develops policies for teacher education programs and submits them to the appropriate administrative agency for review and subsequent approval. The Council approves admissions to the teacher education program and student teaching, reviews petitions requesting exceptions to policies and recommends criteria for teaching licenses. COPTSP membership consists of faculty from departments that have a state-approved teacher education program, students in an education major and ex-officio members. Meetings are held once a month, August through May.
