The Credentials Team serves all certificated and management team members. Our main role is to ensure all our certificated staff are appropriately credentialed and assigned. We work with The California Department of Education, The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and The Orange County Department of Education to ensure the District is adhering to all current legislation. We are here to assist you with any questions you may have regarding Credentialing, No Child Left Behind Legislation, Contracts, Salary Placements, Management Professional Growth, and Background Checks. Credentials also assists with questions for The Paraprofessional Program and STRS Waivers/Exemptions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing has notified the District that all clear, professional and professional clear credential holders renew their credentials online. The online renewal process requires access to the internet and payment by VISA or MasterCard.
