NCTM Program Review Service Ending Following the Spring 2024 Cycle
Following the completion of the Spring 2024 cycle the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) will cease to offer the service of program review for licensure, certification, and/or endorsement of Secondary and Middle Level Mathematics teacher education programs and Elementary Mathematics Specialist advanced programs. New submission will be accepted for the Fall 2023 cycle. Only Revised and Response to Conditions reports will be reviewed in Spring 2024. NCTM will not review SPA Reports in the Fall 2024.
The decision, made by the NCTM Board of Directors, is an effort to be fiscally responsible for the Council while also providing lead time to programs and institutions working towards report submission. The decision to no longer offer this service does not diminish NCTM's backing and commitment to quality standards for the preparation of mathematics teachers, specialists, and leaders.
NCTM stands behind our 2020 Standards for Mathematics Teacher Preparation Programs and encourages programs and institutions to use these standards to guide their work.
Once NCTM's services end, providers offering middle level and secondary mathematics educator preparation programs and seeking accreditation through CAEP will be able to select from:
Programs that receive National Recognition from NCTM by the Spring of 2024 will be listed on the CAEP website as nationally recognized until the expiration of that status.
