ST. LOUIS — The Missouri State Board of Education has approved new standards for teacher preparation programs.

The new policy sets out standards for preparing future teachers and the requirements students must meet to earn their educator certificates.

Officials have been working on the policy for several years and say it will allow annual reviews of performance data for the first time.

The state board approved the standards Tuesday. They take effect March 30.
