Preliminary Admininstrative Services Credential - Tier I

The California Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSELs) are aligned with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards. The latter is a comprehensive set of standards for school administrators that are used to prepare, license, and select administrators in most states. The administrator who meets these standards is one who helps teachers meet their professional standards and helps students meet academic content standards.

Administrator candidates in the Cal Poly Educational Leadership program must be able to demonstrate competency in the CPSELs by the conclusion of the program in order to be recommended for the Tier I Administrative Services Credential.
