The CTC is responsible for licensing (credentialing) California teachers. Complete explanations of credential requirements, and listings of teacher preparation programs and CTC-approved subject matter preparations programs are available by clicking the CTC title link above, as is application material for credentials, permits, certificates, and renewals. Many applications may be submitted directly through CTC Online.
The Monrovia Unified School follows the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation to determine if a teacher is Highly Qualified. Under the NCLB Act, teachers in both Title 1 and non-Title 1 schools are required to meet the Highly Qualified Standards for core academic subject areas by June 30, 2006. The core academic content areas are Elementary Education; English/Language Arts; Reading; Mathematics; Science; Foreign Languages; Music; Art; Drama and Social Sciences (Political Science, History, Civics and Government, Economics and Geography).
Pursuant to NCLB guidelines, Local Educational Agencies must provide to parents, under the "Parents Right-to-Know" requirement, timely notice of their right to request and receive information regarding the professional qualifications of their child's teachers and para-professionals. In addition, parents must be informed when their child has been assigned to, or has been taught by, a non-Highly Qualified teacher for four or more consecutive weeks.
Parents may look up the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teacher using the link above to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing website.
Non-certificated individuals, prior to starting a paid or non-paid position working with pupils in a student activity program sponsored by MUSD, are required to obtain an Activity Supervisor Clearance Certificate (ASCC) from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Please click the ASCC title link above for more information.
