What is the Regents Advisory Committee on Graduate Study (RACGS)? The Ohio Board of Regents has been charged by the General Assembly (Rule 3333-1-07 of the Ohio Administrative Code) to approve, approve with stipulations or disapprove all new graduate degrees and new graduate degree programs offered by higher education institutions in the State of Ohio. The Chancellor of the OBR has delegated the responsibility of assessment of new graduate degree programs to RACGS. The RACGS Guidelines establish procedures for review and approval of graduate degree programs. The members of RACGS: Review and Recommend New Graduate Degree Programs Review and Endorse Changes to Degree Names, Degree Titles and Degree Designations Review and Endorse Delivery Model Changes (e.g., Off-Site, Distance Learning) Review and Endorse Graduate Certificate Programs Provide recommendations on the Doctoral Subsidy Funding Formula

PROCEDURES FOR NEW GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM REQUESTS [For Public 4-yr Institutions, University of Dayton, Case Western Reserve University] 1.Contact your graduate dean to initiate a new graduate degree program request with the members of the Regents’ Advisory Committee on Graduate Study (RACGS). RACGS Membership If the proposed offering leads to teacher licensure, FORM A needs to be completed. Contact Corey Posey for further info. firstname.lastname@example.orgRACGS MembershipFORM A email@example.com 2.Review pages 6-13 of the RACGS Guidelines to help your graduate dean prepare a Program Development Plan (PDP) that leads to a Full Proposal (FP), a final Response Document (RD) and a Formal Presentation to RACGS.RACGS Guidelines
PROCEDURES... CONT’D 3.The FP is an expansion of the PDP and will include a) clarification and revisions of the PDP, b) any additional information needed to address the review criteria for new programs, and c) appendices containing such items as needs surveys and consultants’ reports. 4.Once the Full Proposal is circulated on the RACGS listserv for a second six week circulation and comment period, and if the feedback is mostly favorable, your graduate dean may proceed with the Response Document.
PROCEDURES... CONT’D 5.The written Response Document is circulated by your graduate dean to the RACGS listserv just prior to the formal presentation of the degree program (at least 10 days in advance of the formal presentation to RACGS). The RD includes an OBR Fiscal Impact Statement and is a four year projection of enrollments, program income, program expenses, etc.OBR Fiscal Impact Statement 6.When your graduate dean has determined that the program is ready to be formally presented to RACGS, s/he will request the Chair of RACGS to place it on the agenda at a monthly RACGS meeting. RACGS Meeting ScheduleRACGS Meeting Schedule
PROCEDURES... CONT’D 7. If the program is recommended by RACGS for Chancellor approval, a Background Summary is posted to the OBR web for ten business days for public comment. OBR Program Approval Pending If there are no substantive concerns, the summary is submitted for Chancellor approval and signature.OBR Program Approval Pending 8. The graduate dean is then notified of its status. On average, it takes four to six months to receive final, formal approval for a new graduate degree program offering.
SUSPENDING A GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM Graduate Dean notifies RACGS and OBR staff about a program’s suspension If institution plans to reactivate program at some point, request reactivation within 7 years of suspension If substantive changes to program, graduate dean at requesting institution must submit a Full Planning Proposal to RACGS
DISCONTINUING A GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM If suspended program is not reactivated within 7 years, program is discontinued. If institution plans to reactivate after 7 years, must seek formal approval through RACGS & OBR as a “new” graduate degree program since program may be significantly changed When an institution has no plans to reactivate a suspended graduate degree program, graduate dean must inform RACGS & OBR that program has been discontinued. If institution does plan to reactivate a suspended program, must seek RACGS & OBR approval as a “new” graduate degree program

NCATE State Alliance Transforming Teacher Education Through Clinical Practice: A National Strategy to Prepare Effective TeachersTransforming Teacher Education Through Clinical Practice: A National Strategy to Prepare Effective Teachers Statewide Scan of Clinically Based Preparation Programs NCATE State Alliance for Clinical Preparation meetings (May 18-20) –Tom Bordenkircher, OBR –Sandra Stroot, OSU –Marilyn Troyer, ODE
10 Design Principles for Clinically Based Preparation 1.Student learning is the focus 2. Clinical preparation is integrated throughout every facet of teacher education in a dynamic way 3. A candidate’s progress and the elements of a preparation program are continuously judged on the basis of data 4. Programs prepare teachers who are expert in content and how to teach it and are also innovators, collaborators and problem solvers 5. Candidates learn in an interactive professional community
10 Design Principles for Clinically Based Preparation 6. Clinical educators and coaches are rigorously selected and prepared and drawn from both higher education and the P-12 sector 7. Specific sites are designated and funded to support embedded clinical Preparation 8. Technology applications foster high-impact preparation 9. A powerful R&D agenda and systematic gathering and use of data supports continuous improvement in teacher preparation 10. Strategic partnerships are imperative for powerful clinical preparation
Goals and Objectives of NCATE Alliance for Clinical Teacher Preparation Objective One: Foster collaborative partnerships among schools, districts, and teacher preparation programs. a. Identify demonstrations sites that have/will develop a strong partnership between teacher preparation programs and school districts b. Identify schools with a particular focus on high-needs schools c. Test different delivery models for clinically based teacher preparation d. Establish incentives for joint responsibility for induction by hiring districts AND preparation programs e. Institutionalize school/teacher prep program clinical models through innovative funding models f. Assure that vigorous clinical teacher prep is a main feature of all pathways to teaching
Goals and Objectives of NCATE Alliance for Clinical Teacher Preparation Objective Two: Assess all aspects of performance on a continuing basis a. Collect/analyze formative and summative assessment data measures used by teacher candidates reflecting classroom learning and school improvement b. Link performance assessment to state licensing requirements c. Expecting demonstration sites to establish and implement an accountability system based on assessment measures of graduates’ and programs’ performance through value-added and other measures in state and district longitudinal data systems. d. Link performance assessment to program approval for the purpose of program improvement
Goals and Objectives of NCATE Alliance for Clinical Teacher Preparation Objective Three: Develop more effective state policies to prepare teachers who meet school needs a. Incentives/Policies to guide numbers and types of teachers prepared so that districts/schools needs are met b. Identify and eliminate policies that impede innovation and shifts toward clinically based teacher prep programs c. Create a “Scale-up” plan to expand from a limited number of clinical teacher prep partnerships to a state-wide system which improves student learning
Three Endorsement Programs requiring SPA’s ATTENTION all NCATE schools approved by Ohio to offer the following endorsement programs: 1.Computer/Technology (grades P-12) 2.Gifted Intervention Specialist (grades K-12) 3.Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language (TESOL) (grades P-12) Please submit these continuing programs to your SPA for review as well as maintain the data necessary for the institution’s unit review. This change will impact program reports submitted after spring 2013 (April 1, 2013) as well as any institution with an NCATE accreditation visit spring 2016 and beyond.
