SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

Education Specialist Credential Program: Mild/Moderate

Justification:

CHANGE: The Education Specialist Credential Program: Mild/Moderate will be dropping five courses (EDS 216, 122, 124, 291 & HLSC 136) as a program Level I requirement. This action is in response to community feedback, student surveys, and as a reaction to mandated CCTC Standards for the Mild/Moderate Educational Specialist Credential. Additionally, in response to the above constituents and standards, the lecture/lab paradigm is being applied to several methodology classes (EDS 101, 273, 276 & 292). The format for these courses will have a theoretical framework(A) and field based application(B)

Finally, in response to the above constituents, an existing options class (EDS 276A/B) will become part of the required coursework for the Mild/Moderate Educational Specialist Credential and one unit will be added to the initial EDS 232 Mild/Moderate seminar.

These actions will lead to a net drop of ten-units and is a cost saving benefit to the graduate credential program.

The revised program changes has fewer course requirements due to State standards no longer needing to be addressed in individual courses. Our program changes demonstrate how State standards can be met with fewer courses.

The program changes also enables prospective individuals to get their educational specialist credential in a timely fashion.

Education Specialist Credential Program: Multiple Subject

CHANGE: The Teaching Credential Program: Multiple Subject will be dropping two courses (EDS 216, & HLSM 136) requirement.

Additionally, in response to the above constituents and standards, the lecture/lab paradigm is being applied to several methodology classes (EDS 101A/B, 273A/B, 276A/B & 292A/B). The format of these courses will have a theoretical framework(A) and a field based/lab application(B).

Finally, in response to the above constituents, an existing options class (EDS 276A/B) will become part of the required coursework for the Mild/Moderate Educational Specialist Credential and one unit will be added to the initial EDS 232 seminar.
