Preliminary Administrative Services Credential

School districts throughout the Bay Area are working with Cal State East Bay with the goal of developing a leadership core within districts’ teaching force and building capacity in our schools. Year 1 cohorts will be offered in a variety of locations starting Fall quarter. The CSUEB program consists of a field-based academic program leading to a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (Tier 1) in 3 quarters. With the course work offered within a district or at another geographically convenient location, this accelerated one-year program provides multiple leadership development opportunities.
