Test Center Opening/Closings Due to COVID-19
Where local guidance permits, the California-based Pearson VUE-owned test centers (PPCs) for California Educator Credentialing Assessments testing will reopen on May 1, 2020. Note that test centers are enforcing social distancing recommendations, and therefore test center capacity will be decreased. Important health and safety considerations are also outlined on the California Educator Credentialing Assessments examination webpage.
SDCOE Teacher Effectiveness and Preparation Programs will continue to operate during the COVID-19 school closures. Due to the closure, the best form of communication at this time is via e-mail.
