                   Dispositions will be used at critical decision points to help ascertain whether or not the teacher candidate progresses.
                   L2 will trigger notification of advisor and teacher candidate. The teacher candidate’s dispositions will be revisited in the next semester of enrollment.
                   L1 will require a documented remediation plan.
