California Commission on Teacher Credentialing

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) is an agency of the California State Government. The major purpose of CCTC is to serve as a state standards board for educator preparation for the public schools of California, the licensing and credentialing of professional educators in the State, the enforcement of professional practices of educators, and the discipline of credential holders in the State of California.

As of July 2008, California law requires all multiple and single subject teacher preparation programs to include a Teaching Performance Assessment (TPA ).

A joint 2009 CCTC and NCATE accreditation visit occurred.
