The names of the program coordinators are listed on their program web sites, which can be accessed at the DCTE website. If the program coordinator determines that a meeting with the candidate is warranted based on the evaluation, then he or she will follow the steps for a dispositions meeting outlined in the Professionalism Policy for Professional Education Candidates.
