New CTC Standards
Description of the New CTC Standards
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing adopted major revisions to the California Administrator Performance Expectations (CAPEs), California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSEL) and the California Teaching Performance Expectations (TPEs) in June of 2016. These revisions completely overhaul the standards and expectations for administrator and teacher preparation programs in California. As programs transition to these new standards and expectations, CLEAR and an alliance of faculty and stakeholders are curating this site to assist with the transition by providing education faculty and practitioners with useful resources aligned with the new standards.
Starting in July of 2017, all of the expectations must be introduced, practiced and assessed during the preliminary credential program. Specifically, these now include an understanding of mental health, social-emotional, and health needs of students in addition to expectations related to trauma, culturally responsive, racism, implicit and explicit bias. These changes also ensure candidates are trained in the foundations of positive interventions and supports, restorative justice, and conflict resolution practices to foster a caring community where each student is treated fairly and respectfully by adults and peers.
