The Teacher Education Candidate Review Committee (TECRC)
The Teacher Education Candidate Review Committee (TECRC) focuses on behaviors or “dispositions” since teachers serve not only as sources of knowledge but also as role models for their students. Thus, violations of our student code, of our academic integrity policy, or of local, state or federal law require review as a means of ensuring that our profession and the educators we prepare here at SUNY Cortland are of the highest caliber and requiring the highest ideals of professional service.
Specifically, The Teacher Education Council (TEC) has charged a standing committee, The Teacher Education Candidate Review Committee (TECRC) with reviewing applications to the teacher education programs; developing rubrics for evaluation; continually assessing candidate qualifications at various checkpoints, and notifying questionable applicants of committee decisions regarding their status in teacher education programs.
Please note: Due to the confidential nature of the decisions rendered by the Teacher Education Candidate Review Committee minutes of their meetings are not publically posted.
