ESPB, with input from the teaching profession and representatives of school administrators, school board members, teacher educator professors, and other interested citizens, sets standards for, and approves, teacher education programs. The Board continually reviews the North Dakota standards and procedures pertaining to licensure and teacher education program approval. All North Dakota teacher education programs must be reviewed on a seven-year cycle. Without this approval, the candidates would not be licensed in North Dakota.
