Brief narrative to explain how to meet state guidelines:
The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential program is currently undergoing re-accreditation through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing in 2020-2021. In order for candidates to earn this credential candidates complete coursework in a state-accredited program which includes documented fieldwork experiences and professional reflection aligned to the CAPEs and supported by a university supervisor/coach and site-based mentor. Additionally, candidates must also pass the California Administrator Preparation Assessment (CalAPA) before the PASC program coordinator can recommend the candidate to the CTC. There was one year reprieve to the latter policy of the CalAPA during Spring 2020 due to COVID-19 circumstances, allowing candidates to be recommended for a credential prior to successful completion of the CalAPA. That group of candidates could complete the CalAPA during the CASC program when clearing their credential.
