Clear Administrative Services Credential (CASC) Program
The CASC program is a path to a California Clear Administrative Services Credential. After you earn your preliminary administrative services credential, CASC is the second phase of preparation for educational leaders. With a focus on job-embedded, experiential learning, the heart of our program is a coaching-based model. CASC supports candidates in the administrative position they currently hold while developing their full capacity, allowing for effective leadership in California 21st century skills. Effective June of 2021, CASC will now be offered virtually to serve educators statewide!
Participants will receive a minimum of 40 hours of coaching each year. Informed by our reciprocal model, this allows both the coach and participant to examine best practices.
Coaches and candidates attend all program classes together, including the Coach Training Classes as outlined in the LVUSD Center for Educational Excellence Course Catalog. Because we believe candidates need to develop coaching capacities to effectively support educators in their schools and districts, candidates experience their learning on multiple levels through discussion and reflection.
To be eligible for the CASC program, you must meet the following criteria:
Possess a valid California Preliminary Administrative Services Credential as noted in Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations section 80054(d)(1) and (2).
Verification of an offer of employment in a full or part time administrative position in an employing agency as defined in Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations section 80054(g)(1).
