Interns

California offers a variety of intern options that allow individuals to be the teacher of record, or to serve as a counselor or administrator, while completing an organized professional preparation program. University intern programs are cooperative teaching, counseling, school psychology, and administrative programs between a university and an employing school district that are administered by the university. District intern programs are for teachers only and are administered by employing school districts whose programs may or may not involve university course work. Completion of an intern program results in the issuance of a preliminary or clear credential.
