Accountability System for Educator Preparation

Approved educator preparation programs (EPPs) annually provide the Texas Education Agency and State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) information about their programs as mandated in Texas Education Code Section 21.045 and 21.0452. This data is used to calculate the indicators in the Accountability System for Educator Preparation (ASEP). For more about ASEP and the performance indicators, visit the TAC 229.4 or the Consumer Information about Educator Preparation Programs Page. To see where these EPPs are located throughout the state, visit our interactive map.
