The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing is currently seeking feedback on adding a content or teaching area to a general education teaching credential via the Title 5 section 80499 option.
The CTC has prepared a webcast describing the various options available to teachers to expand the authorization of their general education credential, available at www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/webcasts-CAW.html.
In addition, a short survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/GeneralEducationAuthorization has been developed to gather information from our stakeholders and assist the commission in the process of changing the regulations.
The CTC suggests watching the webcast to understand the foundational information on Title 5 section 80499 as well as other options currently available, and then completing the survey.
Meanwhile, ACSA is working to inform the CTC as it moves forward on review of the Administrative Services Credential.
ACSA is inviting members to participate in an Oct. 16 stakeholder meeting in Sacramento to inform a CTC writing panel developing the next generation of ASC program standards.
To help ensure a CTC panel’s work is reflective of the current needs of the state’s practitioners, the CTC is asking for input on key issues to be represented in the new standards, asking, “What do members of stakeholder groups want the writing panel to be sure to address?”
Registration to attend the event either electronically or in person can be completed at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6B5FXQ2
