IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING CTC

CAHPERD has been keeping all members informed of the status of the proposed Title 5 California Code of Regulations amendments, Section 80037c, to allow a special teaching authorization in Physical Education to individuals who have no college degree, but who possess a Designated Subjects Special Subjects Teaching Credential in Basic Military Drill (BMD) or Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and pass the CBEST and CSET:

The Special Teaching Authorization in Physical Education authorizes the holder to teach physical education courses in basic military drill and physical fitness training in grades 12 and below, and classes organized primarily for adults.

The Commission on Teacher Credentialing, CTC, sent the regulations to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for review. The OAL must determine, by September 9, 2014, if the proposed regulations meet several legal standards before they can become law.

Since the last CAHPERD update, "Viewpoints: Change in teacher credentialing is a step backward," by President-Elect Dr. Betty Hennessy and President Chad Fenwick, was published in the Sacramento Bee on Wednesday, August 6, 2014. The article can be shared as a Sacramento Bee publication. Click here to the read the article.

IMPORTANT CTC UPDATE AND ACTION ALERT

As previously announced, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) voted on June 19th to send proposed Title 5 California Code of Regulations amendments to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for final review. The amendments add Section 80037c to allow a special teaching authorization in Physical Education to individuals who have no college degree, but who possess a Designated Subjects Special Subjects Teaching Credential in Basic Military Drill (BMD) or Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and pass the CBEST and CSET.

The Special Teaching Authorization in Physical Education authorizes the holder to teach physical education courses in basic military drill and physical fitness training in grades 12 and below, and classes organized primarily for adults.

The OAL must determine by September 9, 2014 if the proposed regulations meet several legal standards before they can become law. CAHPERD opposes attaching an academic teaching authorization to a non-academic credential.

Since June 19, CAHPERD leaders have been hard at work developing media releases. At the July Board of Directors meeting, the Board approved a contract with a communication specialist who is providing valuable guidance. It appears promising that a commentary may appear in a major newspaper this week. Members will be notified if the commentary is published.
