Fresno County Superintendent of Schools CASC program leadership  @ least quarterly   Currently, the program leadership has worked with Fresno County Superintendent of Schools CASC program leadership on establishing a collaborative system for identifying completers who are in an administrator position and are in the CASC clear program. For example, the Fall 2021 CASC Clear Credential cohort has 65 completers enrolled, 20 (30.8 %) of which are completers from FS PASC. Identifying who the completers are, gathering their current contact information, and collaborating with the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools CASC program to provide ongoing support (i.e., CalAPA) and development/training opportunities will allow the faculty in the FS program to maintain the relationships and continue supporting completers.  P12 Program Coordinator and CASC Program Coordinator  Number of completers attaining an administrator position and enrolled in CASC.

This will include obtaining data on the CASC participants in those regions who are completers of the FS PASC program and contact information for continued alumni engagement. @ least quarterly  Include outskirt county offices as well for completers who go through other CASC programs.
