Statewide Strategy Meeting for Teacher Credentialing to be Held at CSU Dominguez Hills

Carson, CAThe 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 accreditation system.

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.
