What is the Clear Induction Administrative Services Credential?
The Clear ASC is designed for full-time school administrators who hold the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential and now need to clear that preliminary credential by obtaining the Clear Administrative Services Credential.
The Clear Induction ASC is an individualized, job-embedded two-year program with enrollment in a program expected upon placement in an administrative position, but no later than one year from activation of the preliminary administrative services credential (CTC PSA 16-13). As required by the CTC, this primarily coaching-based program includes an individual induction plan, professional learning opportunities, and ongoing assessment.
The Clear ASC is offered jointly by UCI Division of Continuing Education and UCI School of Education and is a CTC approved Clear ASC program. As required by the CTC, in order to be eligible for Clear Induction ASC program, one must possess a valid California Preliminary Administrative Services Credential and be a full-time administrator prior to enrollment into the program.
As a public school administrator, do I have to have the Clear ASC?
The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is valid for five years. The intent of state law is that the holder will begin work on the Clear Administrative Services Credential shortly after being hired in school administration.
