Administrative Services Credential Clear Induction Program

Developing system leaders who build high-performing schools to ensure powerful learning for each and every student.

The San Diego County Office of Education offers a job‐embedded, site‐based, individualized coaching program as an approved pathway for clearing the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential. The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) authorizes the completion of an approved Administrative Services Credential Clear Induction Program as the only option for completing the Professional Administrative Services Credential. Enrollment in a CTC approved administrator induction program is expected upon placement in an administrative position, but no later than one year from activation of the preliminary credential. 

Certification of the completion of all training requirements is accomplished through a two-year program that includes one‐on‐one coaching with a skilled administrator, an individualized leadership growth plan, and professional learning as well as a culminating portfolio representing two years of leadership development as an instructional leader based upon the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSEL).

The cost of the program for administrators is $3,300 per year for a total of $6,600 for the two-year clear credential program. Payment plans and financing are available.
