NCATE Social Studies Program Review
CAEP (Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Preparation) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization. More than 30 national associations representing the education profession at large make up the council.
Institutions seeking NCSS approval of their social studies teacher education programs must apply for CAEP accreditation according to CAEP guidelines.
Following are resources to assist in preparing a social studies program report for approval.
For additional assistance, please contact

NCSS provides many levels of help and support to institutions and it is willing to respond to all institutional requests. Responses to inquiries that require no more than one hour of consultant time are provided free. More in depth consulting can be arranged upon request for a fee. (The fee is necessary because NCSS receives no funding from the charges that NCATE assesses institutions for participating in an accreditation review or from states that conduct program reviews that use the NCSS standards. The consultants are volunteers.)
