3 INTRODUCTION TO THE PRELIMINARY CALIFORNIA SINGLE SUBJECT TEACHING CREDENTIAL The preliminary single subject teaching credential is a license to provide instruction in a California public school setting. The single subject credential is a Kindergarten through 12th grade authorization that allows you to teach in a departmentalized classroom setting. That means you are teaching a single subject to several different groups of pupils in a school day. This setting is most commonly found in junior high, high schools and some middle schools. Our credential program meets the Senate Bill 2042 (SB2042) standards for English Learner instruction. This means that upon completion of the program you will be authorized to provide instruction to students for whom English is not their first language. Our program is fully accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The preliminary credential is a 5-year document. The next level of credential is called a clear credential and in order to obtain it you must complete an induction program: an advanced on-the-job training program typically provided by the public school districts but also at some universities. If your employing school or district doesn t offer one you may be able to enroll in a university program. Credential Program Student Handbook Single Subject Orientation 1 Page
