What is Project CREATE?
Initially funded in 2003-2004 by the South Carolina Department of Education's Office of Exceptional Children, with additional funding provided by the Division of Educator Quality and Leadership, the chief mission of CREATE is to grow a highly qualified special education teacher force in the State's public schools. Through a partnership with leading colleges and universities in South Carolina, all with NCATE/State-approved teacher preparation programs in special education, the project underwrites course tuition and textbook costs for qualified individuals to obtain add-on, alternative, or initial certification in special education.
