9 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California Level II Content Content previously included in the Level II program was moved to the Preliminary Program including, but not limited to: -transition -technology -behavioral, emotional and environmental supports (additional content) It is highly likely that the individual will need to complete coursework at a college or university to satisfy to meet this content 9

12 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California Will the institutions of higher education (IHEs) be phasing out the Level II Education Specialist Credential programs? It is the decision of the IHE to elect to offer the Level II program. The adopted Preconditions in prior regulations required that if a program sponsor offers a Level I program then the sponsor MUST offer the Level II program until the sunset date of the program. Since the last date to enroll into the Level I program has passed, IHEs are no longer required to offer the Level II program. Please keep in mind that IHEs must keep their Level II programs available for currently enrolled candidates. Level II programs will be phased out as the Level I candidates complete the work towards the Level II Credential. 12

13 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California Level II Programs (Cont.) Individuals in a Level II program may transition to the Clear Induction Program. In addition, holders of Level I Credentials may complete the induction program option, in addition to the Level II content, to earn a Clear Credential. 13

14 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California If the holder of an Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Credential also holds a Mild/Moderate (M/M) Disabilities specialty area (issued prior to the date that ASD was included in the authorization), can they earn an AASE in ASD for the M/M Disabilities specialty area? Yes, in some cases. See the next slide 14

15 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California ECSE and ASD AA Holders of ECSE Credentials combined with any specialty area except Moderate/Severe may add an ASD AASE if it will expand their authorization to serve students with autism. This is for individuals who completed a Level I program as the Preliminary program includes an ASD authorization. 15

16 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California A candidate completes an AASE program in ASD but only holds a general education teaching credential and a Certificate of Eligibility for a Level I in M/M Disabilities. Can the AASE be added to the Certificate of Eligibility? By regulations an authorization, including an AASE, cannot be added to a Certificate of Eligibility. An individual must upgrade his/her Certificate of Eligibility to a Level I Education Specialist Credential before the AASE may be issued 16

17 Commission on Teacher Credentialing Inspire, Educate, and Protect the Students of California Is there ever a time when the holder of a Clear Education Specialist Credential could add an AASE in ASD? Yes, a Clear Education Specialist Credential holder may add an ASD AASE if the individual held a Level I Credential or other previously initially issued special education credential prior to earning a clear credential. The ASD authorization is earned in the Preliminary program not in the Level I or Level II program. 17
