Statewide Strategy Meeting for Teacher Credentialing to be Held at CSU Dominguez Hills
Carson, CA – The CSU Dominguez Hills College of Education will be hosting a Strategic Plan Stakeholder
Meeting of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) on March 20, 3-5 p.m.
in the Extended Education Building, Room 103, on campus.
The purpose of the meeting is to design a new five-year strategic plan for CTC, the state
standards board for educator preparation in the public schools of California. Issues to be
discussed include development of preparation and performance standards that are aligned with
state-mandated academic content, policies in credential related areas, and an outcome-based
CTC oversees the licensing and credentialing of teachers, the enforcement of their professional
practices, and the discipline of credential holders in the state of California.
The CTC invites all educators, administrators and staff at the K-12 and university level,
parents, and union officials and staff to participate in a Commission Strategic Plan Stakeholder
Meeting to provide their input. The meeting will consist of a summary presentation on the work
of the CTC and an opportunity for educators, administrators and staff at the K-12 and university
level, parents, and union officials and staff. CSUDH is hosting one of only two statewide meetings,
the first having been held in Sacramento earlier this month.
“Dean Lynne Cook and many of our faculty in the College of Education have significant experience
and expertise in the preparation of educational professionals,” says Provost Allen Mori. “Their
insights will be invaluable as CTC considers professional preparation issues and challenges that
must be addressed in the near and long term to meet the need for highly qualified educational practitioners
in all of California's schools.”
To attend, or for more information, contact Hai-Jue Theriault at Hwang@ctc.ca.gov. If unable to attend
the meeting, please fill out the Stakeholder Survey online at www.ctc.ca.gov. Submissions will also be accepted by mail at the CTC Executive Office, 1900 Capitol Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95814.
