Clear Administrative Services Credential

As of June 30, 2015, we are no longer admitting new students to this program.  This is due to the timeline established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, which you can read more about on their website

The Clear Administrative Services Credential (formerly Tier II) program is designed to develop the professional competencies of practicing educational leaders. Students work with their Brandman University faculty mentor and a self-selected district support provider to develop the skills necessary to:

  • Develop, coordinate, and supervise student support services
  • Discipline students
  • Manage school site, district, or county-level fiscal services
  • Develop, coordinate, and assess instructional programs
  • Supervise, evaluate and discipline certificated and classified personnel

Required Courses:

  • EDAU 710 Clear Mentoring of Candidates II
  • EDAU 720 Clear Assessment of Candidate Competence II

Students must successfully complete EDAU 710 before moving on to EDAU 720. The courses may not be taken at the same time.

EDAU 710 Clear Mentoring of Candidates II

In this course, candidates will demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities through an assessment component and ongoing interaction with their faculty mentor and district support provider. Under supervision, candidates will design and implement a Professional Induction Plan (PIP) in which activities are identified that will assist candidates in gaining competencies as a school administrator. In addition, candidates will develop a Professional Portfolio, verifying mastery in all of the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs.) Within the Portfolio are written assignments, narrative reflection, artifacts, and other appropriate evidence.

EDAU 720 Clear Assessment of Candidate Competence II

This course builds upon the foundations of the prior strengths of the candidates, the Professional Induction Plan (PIP), and the materials in the Professional Portfolio. Candidates synthesize their learning and apply conceptual knowledge to administrative practice in ways that engage them in important issues of educational leadership. (EDAU 720 is the second half of the required program. See EDAU 710 for information on the first half.) To recommend a candidate for the Clear Administrative Services Credential, the faculty mentor must verify competence in candidate performance as outlined in the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs)using the candidate’s Portfolio and feedback from the District Support Provider and Faculty Mentor. A summative assessment brings closure to this process and establishes direction for continuing growth and professional development.
