New Candidate Information

Pre-orientation Meeting

Prior to the start of the credential program, newly admitted teacher candidates are required to attend a Pre-orientation meeting. New candidates will be informed of the dates, time and place of the meeting shortly after they receieve their official confirmation of admittance to the program. 

During the Pre-orientation meeting, new candidates learn about program requirements including coursework, student teaching, and assessment. They also complete and sign required paperwork to be eligible to student teach at our partner districts.
