SCHOOL SERVICES CREDENTIALS

School services credentials authorize the holders to perform services for a school district other than classroom teaching. Preparation for the services credentials requires advanced study and special competence. A GPA of 3.0 or better is required for course work listed on the Credential Approved Program (CAP) and a grade of "C" or better must be earned in every course attempted.

The approved programs at San Francisco State University include administrative services, pupil personnel services (counseling, school psychology and school social work), and clinical rehabilitative services.

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES

This credential will authorize the holder to serve as a superintendent, deputy superintendent, principal, assistant principal, supervisor, consultant, coordinator, or in other equivalent or intermediate level positions. Requirements may be met by successful completion of an accredited program such as offered by the Department of Administration and Interdisciplinary Studies, San Francisco State University.

Prerequisites
Requirements for the five-year preliminary administrative services credential:

Internship Program

Point(s) at Which Admission Takes Place
The program at San Francisco State University is designed to provide multiple entry opportunities for both graduates and undergraduates. Students may declare Communicative Disorders as their major at the freshman level. However, they do not begin course work in Communicative Disorders until completion of their General Education requirements, which is usually the end of the sophomore year.

Students may transfer to San Francisco State University at the junior year, declaring Communicative Disorders as the major, and begin taking course work. Students who have not declared Communicative Disorders may request a change of major at any point in their undergraduate program assuming space is available. Students who request a change of major are selected on the basis of grade point average, interest in and experience with individuals having speech, language and/or hearing handicaps. They are required to complete all the necessary course work leading to the baccalaureate degree.

All students must apply to the graduate program in order to continue their professional academic training after the baccalaureate degree.

Graduate transfer students may enter the program following formal admission procedures and selection processes. Students who do not have a baccalaureate degree in Communicative Disorders may expect to spend at least five semesters completing the program.
