Classified Employee Grant



The Classified Employee Grant seeks to provide guidance and financial assistance to future educators who seek a Teaching Credential. The Classified Employee Teacher Recruitment Grant awarded by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, which provides approximately $3000 per year in reimbursements to assist classified employees pursuing a teaching credential was awarded in 2017 to BCOE Future Educator Support in collaboration with Imperial County Office of Education, Orange County Department of Education and San Diego County Office of Education.
This funding supports classified school employees under the collaborating local educational agencies to complete their undergraduate education and/or teacher preparation program so that classified employees can become credentialed teachers in the state’s public schools. One major goal of the program is to support all participants in passing both the CBEST and CSET in a timely manner.
In this endeavor, FES has developed online courses. Our support includes individualized student support,  in-house advising and a platform for CBEST, CSET and RICA test prep.  
In partnering with Feather River College and Mendocino College, our grantees are enrolled in an education course with embedded exam prep and pedagogy.
