More information

Credentialed teachers traditionally came from college and university-based programs that put students through a rigorous training program that included subject proficiency, education and pedagogy classes, and supervised student teaching. In an effort to assist school districts in finding qualified candidates, alternative routes to credentials have been developed.

IMPACT Intern Program Project IMPACT is designed for teachers wishing to complete their California Preliminary Credential while teaching full-time. Project IMPACT is accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). Project IMPACT is a program of the Tulare County Office of Education and is supported by a consortium of local school districts.

Project IMPACT is a two-year program for Multiple Subject and Single Subject credentials, and includes a third year for Special Education credentials in which interns gain expertise in teaching through coaching and support and by completing a schedule of nine courses per year. IMPACT teachers are employed as interns in the following manner: in multiple subject, self-contained classrooms; in single subject, departmentalized classrooms; and in Special Education classrooms during the day while attending credential classes two evenings per week.
