Standard 1: Educational Leadership
- 1.5 The Education Unit implements and monitors a credential recommendation process that ensures that candidates recommended for a credential have met all requirements.
The USD School of Leadership and Education Sciences employs a full time credential analyst who maintains records for all credential candidates. These records include documentation of all requirements for the credential (i.e. fingerprinting, background checks, successful completion of required California tests, successful completion of all required courses, etc.). After the candidate has documented all requirements, the credential analyst recommends the candidate to the state for the appropriate credential(s).
