School of Education
SCOE’s School of Education includes programs that help new teachers get their credentials and aspiring leaders become administrators. Its mission is to provide high-quality credential programs and professional development to support teachers and leaders in the Capital Region. The School of Education is comprised of three divisions: Teaching, Leading, and Technical Support.
The SCOE School of Education is committed to diversity and inclusion through the intentional recruitment and support of educators with diverse ethnicities and backgrounds representative of the Sacramento region.
The “Teaching” division of the School of Education includes an Intern Program and an Induction Program. The Intern Program supports candidates in a variety of ways during their mandatory “pre-service” and during their time as full time teachers during the two years of Intern Program. The Teacher Induction Program supports teachers who have earned their preliminary credentials, are in their first two years of teaching with their preliminary credentials, and are working to further develop their teaching practice.
The “Leading” division of the School of Education includes the Leadership Institute, a collaboration with local school districts that prepares and supports both current and aspiring education leaders.
Technical Support Division
The “Technical Support” division of the School of Education includes recruitment and retention support and the Statewide Residency Technical Assistance Center (SRTAC). Recruitment and retention efforts include a regional job fair for classified and certificated employees. SRTAC provides expert advice and support to program leaders from local education agencies (LEAs) across the region.
