  1. Foundational standards including program vision and goals, administration, principal and site leader engagement, and program assessment, evaluation, and accountability with a focus on continuous improvement.
  2. Structural standards including mentor roles and responsibilities, proffessional development, teacher assessment and beginning teacher proffessional development and learning communities.
