The Steering Committee for the Revision of the Elementary Education Teacher Preparation Standards is currently working on the draft standards. The draft will be submitted to CAEP’s SPA Standards Committee for review and approval in August 2017. If approved, the new standards are projected to be released in spring 2018.

There will be a transition period of two years (four review cycles) upon release of the new elementary education standards. Programs scheduled to submit their SPA reports for initial review during the transition period will have the option to use either the 2007 ACEI standards or the newly adopted standards.
