University Center Adds Special-Education Information Meetings
The University Center has announced added dates for its upcoming information meetings for the highly anticipated Special Education Credential program for the Santa Clarita Valley. The meetings, conducted by California State University Bakersfield (CSUB), will focus on the admission requirements, prerequisites, and scheduling of the program which is slated to begin in January 2006.
Each of the meetings will begin at 5:00 p.m. and held in the University Center on the College of the Canyons campus. In order to be considered for admission, a student must attend one of the following meetings: October 12 or November 9. A mandatory orientation will then be held at date to be determined for all students making application for admission.
The 2-year part-time program provides an exemplary credential and master's degree in Mild/Moderate disabilities and is accredited by NCATE and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). NCATE accreditation is a mark of distinction, and provides recognition that the college of education has met national professional standards for the preparation of teachers.
The credential program will begin in January. All classes will be held in the University Center and scheduled in the evening or on Saturday. Student teaching will take place in the Santa Clarita Valley school districts.
