Special Ed. teachers making a difference in young peoples lives.
The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) Education Specialist Clear Induction Program was launched during the 2012-2013 year and currently serves 110 Education Specialist teachers from all over Los Angeles County. There is a large demand for a state-approved induction program for the Clear Education Specialist Credential, but few universities and local districts are able to offer such a program to their Special Education Teachers at present. The LACOE Education Specialist Clear Induction Program combines coursework in a face-to-face classroom and hybrid setting with highly qualified experts in the field of Special Education, along with an assigned support provider who is a credentialed and experienced Education Specialist. This program is designed for Education Specialists who are currently employed in a Special Education Teaching assignment teaching students with Mild/Moderate Disabilities, Moderate/Severe Disabilities, Severely Handicapped, Deaf & Hard of Hearing, Early Childhood, Autism and other SPED authorizations. LACOE provides individual advisement, program oversight, support providers/mentors and on-going support to all SPED teachers in this program. Due to the large demand for this program throughout the county, we anticipate this program to continue to grow for the 2017-18 year.
