Single Subject Credential

For those of you who are taking classes in preparation for a Teaching Credential, be advised that the waiver of the requirement to take the CSET exam is coming to an end soon. You must complete all coursework by July 1, 2009, for the waiver to be in effect. After that date, all who hope to teach in either public or private schools in California must pass the CSET. (The courses that in past times were required for the waiver also provide excellent preparation to pass the CSET.)
