The Commission’s Policy Manual provides for the appointment of a student enrolled in an educator preparation program to represent the views and experiences of students as a liaison to the Commission. Interested parties must complete the application form and send it, with all additional requested documentation, to the attention of the Executive Office at the address provided on the form. More information is available via the Commission Website. Deans and Directors of California educator preparation programs are encouraged to share this information with students enrolled in preparation programs. Applications must be postmarked by June 30, 2021.
Timeframe for Returning Requested Information for Applications Submitted:
Historically, applicants have had 60 days from the date of payment of application fees to remit any additional requested information when an application is rejected for more information. SB 98 (Chap. 24, Stats. 2020) extended the validity of fees for an application that is rejected for additional information to 120 days for the period from March 19, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Effective July 1, 2021, the validity period to return requested information will revert from 120 days to 60 days on standard applications, and from 120 days to 30 days for Waiver applications. After July 1, 2021, all reject letters will reflect this change.
