School leadership makes a difference and the Santa Clara County Office of Education's PASC (Tier I) program is designed to prepare educational leaders for the demanding work of ensuring the achievement and academic success of ALL students.
The PASC program is a rigorous 11 month program instructed by Santa Clara County Superintendents, Administrators and prominent educational leaders. Candidates engage in 126 hours of face to face instruction, as well as job embedded guided fieldwork experiences. Equity principled leadership is embedded in all coursework and fieldwork environments.
The PASC curriculum is based on the California Administrative Professional Expectations (CAPES) and the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs). Our course instructors maintain current knowledge and leadership practice through training and ongoing support and services in local schools and districts.
Upon successful completion of the coursework for the PASC, participants names will be submitted to the Administrative Services Office at CCTC for either the Certificate of eligibility (COE) or the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (if the participant has received an offer of administrative employment by a district).
