  1. Developing regulations and guidance pertaining to the operation of educator preparation programs,
  2. Approving and monitoring all preparation programs that operate in New Jersey and are intended to lead to state certification, and
  3. Sharing data and information on approved preparation programs to help promote their continuous improvement
