California Department of Education (CDE) and Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) staff developed recorded webinars about changes in course codes and the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System (CALPADS), California State Assignment Accountability System (CalSAAS), and the Promoting Equitable Access to Teachers (PEAT) program.
Web-based Office Hours for 2020
Starting October 19, 2020, the CDE and the CTC are hosting an office hour on Mondays at 2:00pm so that we can provide updates and answer questions on the topics of these trainings.
