Louisiana Board of Regents prepared the 2022 Board of Regents Teacher Preparation Report as an independent initiative. This initiative aims to make Louisiana’s teacher preparation program outcomes available to the public. The report features information about undergraduate and alternative teacher preparation programs, which include public and private university programs. This report contains specific data about teacher preparation program enrollment, completion, retention licensure test pass rates, and performance. Public and private university program providers have signed consent agreements with the Board of Regents and the Louisiana Department of Education to share this information.
Outcome data in the 2022 Board of Regents Teacher Preparation Report pertains to 2019-20 program completers who taught in 2020-21. Retention data have been provided for 2019-20 completers who taught in 2020-21. Moreover, five-year retention data are provided for 2015-16 completers who taught in 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21.
Due to COVID-19, school districts did not conduct Compass teacher evaluations in 2019-20. During this time, Louisiana’s public schools did not administer achievement tests. Compass teacher evaluations provide three-year averages for first- and second-year teachers who taught in 2017-18, 2018-19, and 2020-21.
