Conceptual Framework Model

Teacher Education Council

The Teacher Education Council (TEC) is the governing body for all educator preparation programs at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. The TEC is composed of teacher education faculty members, public school educators, and community leaders. The TEC is chaired by the Director of Teacher Education.

The Teacher Education Admission and Retention Committee (TEARC) is a subcommittee of the TEC. The TEARC makes all decisions regarding admission to and retention in educator preparation programs at Southeastern. Students may appeal TEARC decisions to the TEC. The decision of the TEC is final.
