    Our program is currently full for the 2023-2024 school year.
    Thank you for your interest in ACOE's program. We accept applications for the 2024-2025 school year starting April 1, 2024. 

    ACOE's Clear Administrative Services Credentialing (CASC) program is intended for individuals who currently possess a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential or an Administrative Services Certificate of Eligibility. Applicants must also be currently employed or have accepted a position in a school district in Alameda County requiring an administrative credential.

    If you are seeking an administrative services credential for the first time, please visit the Commission on Teacher Credentialing's website for the requirements and program sponsors. We look forward to supporting you in future when you are seeking the clear credential. 

    At the College of Education, we develop strong educational leaders so that our students and school communities succeed. Our goals are to:
    • Increase student achievement of at-promise youth across the county.
    • Equip educators with the tools they need to serve those students.
    • Diversify the education workforce at all levels: classified staff, teachers, and administrators.
    • End racist practices that keep certain groups on the margins.
    • Support the whole child.
