CTC Bilingual Authorization

Reporting Measures

This website provides the materials required by the CTC to initiate our Bilingual Authorization Program at the University of San Diego. The Department of Learning and Teaching has developed the program structure in collaboration with our University community partners as well as the district and county dual-language stakeholders. We look forward to receiving feedback and approval from the CTC.
