The California State University East Bay Department of Educational Leadership offers a job-embedded, site-based, individualized coaching program and professional development seminars as an approved pathway for clearing the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC). The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) authorizes the completion of an approved Administrative Services Clear Credential Induction Program as the only option for completing the Clear Administrative Services Credential.
Certification of the completion of all training requirements is accomplished through a two-year program that includes one-on-one coaching with a skilled administrator, an individualized leadership growth plan, and professional learning seminars as well as a culminating portfolio representing two years of leadership development as an instructional leader based upon the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSEL).
This program meets the new CTC standards. Course list subject to change. Tier II is a two year program. You will take two classes per semester. Classes meet one Saturday per month from 9am to 1pm.
