3 INTRODUCTION TO THE PRELIMINARY CALIFORNIA MULTIPLE SUBJECT TEACHING CREDENTIAL The preliminary multiple subject teaching credential is a license to provide instruction in a California public school setting. The multiple subject credential is a Kindergarten through 12th grade authorization that authorizes teaching in a self-contained classroom setting. That means you are teaching several different subjects to one group of pupils each school day. This setting is most commonly found in elementary schools. Our credential program meets 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 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 employment doesn t offer one you may be able to enroll in a university program. Credential Program Student Handbook Multiple Subject Orientation Page 1
