Welcome to Field Services!
You have reached a very exciting part of the program! The clinical practice experience is your opportunity to apply all that was learned in coursework and utilize current teaching-learning research. Our goal is to help you create well-functioning classroom environments where students interact and learn the state-adopted academic standards.
To facilitate a successful fieldwork experience, the Office of Field Services provides support to all Cooperating Teachers (CT), University Supervisors (US), and Student Teachers/Teacher Candidates (ST/TC) engaged in our credential programs.
We are excited to assist and guide you through this journey. Please use the information and links below to learn more about our programs and fieldwork guidelines.
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) recently announced that the Basic Skills Requirement (BSR), which is most often met through the CBEST exam, may now be met by Commission-approved coursework. If you are interested in having your courses reviewed by a Credential Analyst for this option you MUST submit a Basic Skills Requirement (BSR) Form to email@example.com by or before Friday, October 8, 2021 for Spring 2022 Student Teaching consideration. They will confirm if you met this requirement through coursework or not.
**The BSR Form should only be completed and submitted by students who have not fully completed and passed the Basic Skills Requirement. Any student that has already completed this requiement through the CBEST exam and has sent in passing results for all sections should not send in a BSR Form.**
We are still pending direction from CCTC regarding fulfilling Subject Matter Competency (SMC) through Commission-approved coursework. So as of now, all programs will require full SMC completion through one of the following options: ESM Waivers/SMPP; pass all CSETs in content area; or have an authorized bachelor's degree that matches content area. Please visit your program's webpage (under the Clinical Practice Materials section) to learn more about your program's eligibility requirements and guidelines.
