Classified Employee Grant 2022 Five Counties PNG

CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE GRANT

GRANT OVERVIEW

GRANT OVERVIEW

Awarded by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, the Classified Employee Grant (CEG) seeks to provide guidance and financial assistance to educators who are pursuing a teaching credential. The CEG was awarded in 2022 to a five county consortium including Butte County Office of Education, Orange County Office of Education, Imperial County Office of Education, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, and San Diego County Office of Education. The goal of the CEG is to address the state’s teacher shortage in the areas of STEM, special education, bilingual education, and Transitional Kindergarten. In addition, the CEG seeks to provide financial assistance to help participants complete their undergraduate education and/or teacher preparation program. Expenses such as tuition, fees, books, and examination costs can be reimbursed to the participant, should they qualify for the grant. Additional support will be provided to grant awardees via academic guidance and transitional support as they become credentialed teachers in California. Our CEG participants will have access to approximately $3,500 per year in reimbursements to assist with academic expenses listed above.
 
As a five county consortium, we have structured the CEG to support all participants in passing required credential exams and assessments. To meet this goal, we have developed online courses and resources to support the passing of the California Basic Educational Skills Test(CBEST), California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET), Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA) and California Teacher Performance Assessment (CalTPA). In addition, all participants will be individually mentored and guided by an Educational Advisor throughout participant’s participation in the grant.
APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY

APPLICANT ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for the grant, potential candidates must hold a classified position in Butte County within a district, charter, or with the county office. Applicants must be interested in pursuing a teaching credential and have completed a minimum of 60 college units. Grant participants must adhere to all grant requirements to maintain their status in the grant and eligibility for reimbursable funds. Since the grant is reimbursable, participants must first pay for items out of pocket and submit their receipts to get access to grant funds. Applicants who currently hold a preliminary credential or cleared credential are not eligible for this grant.

EDUCATIONAL ADVISOR
Once accepted into the CEG, all grant participants will be assigned to an Educational Advisor. Educational Advisors will mentor, guide, and support grant participants with their unique teacher pathway throughout their participation in the CEG. Grant participants meet with their Educational Advisor for three formal online meetings through Zoom or by phone. During advising meetings, Educational Advisors collaborate with participants on an Individualized Pathway Plan to monitor participants’ progress and outline the next steps. The Educational Advisor provides participants with access to information and resources to help meet their educational goals and needs.
 
GRANT EDUCATION COURSES
In an effort to support grant participants to meet credential requirements, the grant will provide targeted support through our online education courses from one of our partnered community colleges: Feather River College, Mendocino College, or College of the Siskiyous. Enrollment in the grant educational course does not interfere with the participant’s current institution or future enrollment in their preferred institution. The grant educational course is completed alongside the participant’s current and future courses.
