EARLY COMPLETION OPTION
Senate Bill 57 and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) Induction Preconditions provide for an Early Completion Option for Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist Induction candidates. The Early Completion Option (ECO) is equally as rigorous as the full-length program, although may be completed in a modified amount of time, and is intended for “experienced and exceptional" candidates. Upon successful completion of induction requirements, as set forth in this policy, candidates are recommended to the CTC for a clear credential. The ECO is available to candidates who meet the following established criteria:
- Hold a California Preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and/or Education Specialist Credential with no outstanding assessments (RICA or CalTPA)
- Be able to document a minimum of two years prior teaching experience as the full-time teacher of record in the earned credential area. Experience may include completion of an intern program and/or teaching out-of-state.
*Substitute teaching, student teaching, or experience as a paraeducator do not qualify.
All candidates will enroll in our traditional two-year program. Once the program starts, there will be a meeting about the Early Completion Option. Applicants who meet the requirements will be given an application to complete. The TTIP Administrator will review each application and communicate with the candidate regarding their acceptance status.
