SUPPORT FOR SB 654 (BERGESON): "Teacher Credentialing:
Streamlining of Credentialing Requirements"

AS-2156-93/TE - May 6-7, 1993

WHEREAS, SB 654 amends the Education Code to require the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) to use challenging, attainable, and accessible "standards of preparation and competence" as the basis for awarding single subject and multiple subject teaching credentials; and

WHEREAS, SB654 would also reduce "unnecessary credentials" without compromising the "high standards for breath and depth" of teacher preparation; therefore be it

RESOLVED, That the Academic Senate CSU urge the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees to support SB 654 (Bergeson) in its effort to streamline teacher certification and to base it on assessment and competence rather than the completion of stipulated requirements.

APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY - May 7, 1993
