Inyo and Mono Sups offering credentialing program
Inyo County Superintendent of schools Dr. Terry McAteer and Mono County Superintendent of schools Dr. Stacey Adler have signed an agreement with National University to offer a local teaching credential program. Dr. McAteer says the effort is in response to a “severe shortage of teachers”. The collaboration with National University is described as a one-time opportunity to grow the next crop of teachers from within local communities. National University, the largest teacher credential institution in the state, will offer a Multiple Subject (K-8th grade) and Single Subject (9-12th grade) Credential Program. The tuition-based program, starting this September, is ten months in length and classes would be a mixture of classroom-based along with on-line instruction. The local college classes will be offered in the evenings and will alternate between Bishop and Mammoth. Two informational meetings have been set.
Wednesday, May 27th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Mammoth Lakes Library, 400 Sierra Park road.
Thursday, May 28th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Jill Kinmont-Boothe School, 166 grandview drive, Bishop.
