Expanding the Pool of Teachers Policy
The state should provide an alternate route that is free from regulatory obstacles that limit its usage and providers.
Colorado does not limit the usage or providers of its alternate routes.
Colorado is commended for not placing restrictions on the usage of its alternate routes with regard to subject, grade or geographic area.
Districts, private and charter schools, Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) and universities may all be approved as designated agencies offering alternate route programs. The state is commended for structuring its programs to allow a diversity of providers. A good diversity of providers helps all programs, both university- and non-university-based, to improve.
