The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation states:

Educator preparation providers (EPPs) seeking accreditation should have strong collaborative partnerships with school districts and individual school partners, as well as other community stakeholders, in order to pursue mutually beneficial and agreed upon goals for the preparation of education professionals. These collaborative partnerships are a shared endeavor meant to focus dually on the improvement of student learning and development and on the preparation of teachers for this goal. The partners shall work together to determine not only the values and expectations of program development, implementation, assessment, and continuous improvement, but also the division of responsibilities among the various partnership stakeholders.

Currently, the office of Clinical Experiences, Placements and Partnerships (CEPP) arranges field placements and builds partnerships with local schools in the following school systems: Atlanta Public Schools, Bartow County Schools, Cartersville City Schools, Cherokee County Schools, Cobb County Schools, Dekalb County Schools, Douglas County Schools, Floyd County Schools, Forsyth County Schools, Fulton County Schools, Gwinnett County Schools, Marietta City Schools, and Paulding County Schools.
