Title II is a federal mandate. Sections 205 through 208 of the Title II of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) call for accountability for programs that prepare teachers. The Higher Education Act was signed in 1998, and legislation was reauthorized in 2008. California Commission-approved institutions that offer preliminary teaching programs report annually to the States in April. States report annually to the U.S. Department of Education in October. Annual state reports including data files are available on the Title II Higher Education Act website.

As it pertains to the work of the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (Commission), AB 2086 adds to the provisions relating to the California Education Information System Legislative intent that, as the California Education Information System is implemented over time, access to public information already available on various measures of the quality of teacher preparation programs be available in electronic format and be accessible to the extent practicable through downloadable pages and reports accessible to the public in a consolidated manner. This bill also requires all teacher preparation programs to provide information, as specified, to prospective candidates regarding the license examination passage rates of completers for the most recent available year, if that data is available electronically through the Commission's Internet Web. Finally, the Commission is required to provide all teacher preparation programs with the appropriate electronic link to comply with the information mandate above. To the extent feasible, the link may also include access to additional data from the Commission and from the California Longitudinal Teacher Integrated Data Education system regarding the types of programs offered and data on program effectiveness. This bill took effect January 1, 2010.
Title II Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA)
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended in 2008 by the HEOA
Section 205 of Title II of the Higher Education Opportunity Act mandates that Department of Education collect data on state assessments, other requirements, and standards for teacher certification and licensure, as well as data on the performance of teacher preparation programs. The law requires the Secretary to use these data in submitting an annual report on the quality of teacher preparation to the Congress. Data from institutions with teacher preparation programs are due to states annually, beginning April 30, 2010, for use by states in preparing annual report cards to the Secretary.
