CORRESPONDENCE RE: PTA PROGRAM
The Board reviewed correspondence regarding the approval of school accreditation that was submitted by Jonathan Bird, PTA program director of Apollo College-Boise Campus.
The law requires APTA accreditation and in rule under definitions (Rule 010.16) it states it must be a nationally accredited school. The curriculum must be approved by the following: The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) Commission, The Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association, or An Accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation, or both.
A motion was made by Ms. Liddle to direct Board counsel and Ms. Gilstrap respond to this inquiry, stating that accreditation through ACICS would not qualify for the school’s PTA program and thus would need to obtain the approval of the associations referenced in Rule.
