Administrative Services Credential: Tier II

Notre Dame de Namur University offers an excellent program designed to facilitate the induction and professional development of beginning administrators and to fulfill the California Teacher Credentialing Commission requirements for the completion of the Professional Clear Administrative Services Credential – Level II. The program is a collaborative endeavor among the candidate, employing district and NDNU, offering a choice of learning opportunities based on candidate and school district assessed needs.

This induction, mentoring, university course work and advanced fieldwork program are based on an assessment of the candidate’s skills and knowledge and are individualized to fit the specific needs of each candidate and school. During the program, the candidate will work in a personalized mentoring and coaching relationship, engage in reflection and receive guidance and support while undertaking a new leadership role. Each semester course will also require Level II class time to reflect on the planning, implementation, and evaluative activities. All Level II candidates will complete and present a professional portfolio at the end of the program.

See the NDNU General Catalog for program requirements and course descriptions.

Autism Authorization Add-On

Notre Dame de Namur University offers an add-on teaching authorization for teaching students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This authorization can be added to an existing special education teaching credential to expand the scope of instruction for current teachers. It can also be added on to any base credential, whether it was obtained at NDNU or somewhere else. Additionally, there may be general education teachers or related service personnel who may choose to enroll in this course sequence to better their understanding of ASD. Request more information.
