In accordance with California state regulations, the Preliminary Credential authorizes you to seek initial employment as a special education teacher, but does not authorize ongoing teaching service. You will need to complete the Professional (Clear) California teaching credential in both special education and multiple subject or single subject, within five years of the date of issuance of your Preliminary Credentials in order to continue ongoing teaching service as an educator.

To complete the Professional (Clear) Credential, you will be required to enroll in a commission-approved SB 2042 Professional Teacher Induction Program.
