Clear Induction Administrative Services

The Induction program for the Clear Administrative Services Credential Candidates is a two-year program that utilizes a leadership coaching model (in lieu of coursework) and is tied to the CA Professional Standards for Educational Leaders. Candidates are paired with an experienced administrator who 'coaches' the candidate over the two-year period and works one-on-one for an average of 40 hours per year. All coaches have been certified in coaching methodology. Candidates also attend targeted professional development activities based on the needs of the candidate.

Both the Preliminary and Clear Administrator Credential Programs are accredited by the CA Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
