The Commission on Teacher Credentialing is seeking appointment to fill three (3) School Board Member alternate positions on the Committee of Credentials. The Committee reviews allegations of misconduct against educators. A copy of the application can be found on the Committee of Credentials page.
A new Guide to Out-of-State Teaching Credentials has been added to the CIG. This chart can serve as a helpful guide when reviewing the credentials of applicants from other US states to determine if their credentials meet the standard required under California statute.
A link to the chart can be found by accessing the “Charts” page, found in the CIG under the “Resources” heading.
The Commission is pleased to announce its intent to fund 28 LEAs for the second round of the California Classified School Employee Teacher Credentialing Program grants. This round of funding will help support 1,250 classified school employees to complete their undergraduate education and/or teacher preparation program so that classified employees can become credentialed teachers in the state’s public schools. Funding letters will be sent to grant recipients the week of November 3, 2017.

Due to the recent fires that have ravaged parts of Northern and Southern California this week, resulting in evacuations, school closures, and suspension of district and county office operations, the Commission and the Center recognize there are CalED program applicants in these affected areas who will need more time to complete their grant applications.
The Governor has declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma, Yuba, Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada, and Orange Counties. Applicants from these areas will be granted an extension of the application deadline to November 3, 2017. This means electronic and paper copies of proposals from applicants in the declared emergency areas must reach the Commission on Teacher Credentialing by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 3, 2017.
Applicants who are not from the declared emergency areas or whose consortium applications do not include an LEA located in one of the above-indicated emergency areas must comply with the original application deadlines of 5 p.m. on October 27, 2017 for both electronic and paper copies to reach the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
