Induction Program for a Clear Credential (Multiple and Single Subject)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Summary of Curricula Offered

The induction program offers contracted teachers the opportunity to obtain a professional clear credential. The two-year program provides mentored support reflecting the candidate’s instructional context and needs, develops deeper understandings of pedagogy, advances knowledge and application of current universal access to meet the needs of all students.

Interaction with faculty as a part of the coursework is fully online. Assignments include field experience that can be in your local school setting.

Prerequisite: A valid SB 2042 Preliminary Multiple or Single Subject Credential or equivalent. A contract to teach at a K-12 school. Clear credential program coursework cannot be taken prior to issuance of the preliminary credential. Requires verification of contracted employment by school administration before seeking approval to complete field experience in their own classrooms.*

Courses Required for the Credential (24 units*)

SPED 651  and TE 969  (3 units) must be taken together in the first semester of the program and only one section of TE 969  can be taken during each semester, such that a non-accelerated program will take two academic years. Experienced teachers can complete the program with fewer units (accelerated path) upon approval from the program director. The accelerated path can include fewer TE 969  units per semester (using variable units) or fewer semesters, as deemed appropriate by the program director.

All coursework must be done simultaneously with contracted employment at a school site, not during vacation.
