EDUCATIONAL PERSONNEL PREPARATION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) in Policy 5100: Preparing Educational Personnel asks that each institution of higher education that offers an educational preparation program have an Educational Personnel Preparation Advisory Committee (EPPAC) which consists of representatives from college and university educators, public school administrators, and classroom teachers. The liaison to the institution from the WVDE will serve in a nonvoting role. EPPAC serves as an advisory body to the institution’s chief educational personnel preparation officer in developing and reviewing all programs and policies for the preparation of educational personnel within the institution. The EPPAC will meet at least once a semester and will review matters pertaining to the preparation and licensure of personnel.
