West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards (WVPTS)
During the spring of 2009, the West Virginia Department of Education created new teaching standards called West Virginia’s Professional Teaching Standards (WVPTS). Due to this change, the UC education faculty has aligned UC program standards with these new WVPTS. The standards are:
- Standard 1 — Curriculum and Planning
- Standard 2 — The Learner and the Learning Environment
- Standard 3 — Teaching
- Standard 4 — Professional Responsibilities for Self-Renewal
- Standard 5 — Professional Responsibilities for School and Community
