Consortium of Low Incidence teacher Preparation Programs in Kansas Project (CLIPP)

CLIPP is composed of faculty from colleges and universities across Kansas who are committed to collaboratively support and enhance the development and delivery of teacher training programs to meet the standards for low incidence disabilities license(s). This project solidifies relationships and partnerships among participating teacher training programs in the effort to meet the needs of the state of Kansas for highly qualified teachers.

The goals of this project are to:

  • Strengthen the relationships of college and university faculty through the coordination of planning meetings to explore college and university partnerships;
  • Develop a network/infrastructure of professionals working together, as a state resource, to address the need for highly trained teachers of children with low incidence disabilities;
  • Examine potential models for partnerships that would support sharing of cost and revenue for courses shared across teacher training programs.
