The Santa Clara County Office of Education offers a superior, innovative, educational credentialing program for current administrators needing to clear their preliminary credential. This program is designed to develop systems thinking leaders who know how to build capacity in their organizations to ensure equity and access for all students.
The CASC program delivers a cohesive and comprehensive curriculum that integrates coaching and professional development over the course of two years. Professional development, delivered in a seminar format, is based on the California Professional standards for Education Leaders (CPSELs) and designed to develop proficiencies in these standards. Each participant is assigned a one on one coach. Coaches meet with participants bi-weekly guiding them through the development of the standards with ongoing self-assessment and reflection. Participants develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) with specific goals and objectives that align with their job-embedded fieldwork. In addition participants attend eight professional development seminars over the two year period focused on practical implementation of the CPSELs and development of organizational leadership.
Upon successful completion of CASC participants will receive a verification of completion letter that must be brought into the Credential Services office at the Santa Clara County Office of Education. At that time, a credentialing analyst will walk you through the process of filing for your Clear Administrative Services Credential.
