SHAPE America to Provide Program Review With National Recognition for CAEP Accreditation

In Fall 2021, SHAPE America resumed its role as the Specialized Professional Association (SPA) for CAEP accreditation of PETE and HETE programs. We began by reviewing new reports from educator preparation providers (EPPs) with upcoming CAEP accreditation visits. Programs that were reviewed using the PETE Standards between Spring 2018 and Spring 2019 will not need to submit revised reports from decisions made at that time.

In addition to providing training and support to help educator preparation providers complete the process and receive national recognition, we also offer an opportunity for higher education professionals to serve as program report reviewers.
