Appeal Information for Expiring/Expired Peliminary SB2042 Credentials

The Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) has amended Title V Regulations to address expiring SB 2042 Preliminary Multiple and Single Subject teaching credentials. Holders of soon to expire or expired SB2042 Preliminary Credentials may now request an extension by appeal.

It is important to note that these new amendments do not change the clear credential requirements of employment and completion of a CTC-approved Induction Program, rather they allow teachers additional time to complete existing SB 2042 clear credential requirements under current statutes.

The following appeal options are available:

Two Year Extensions

  • Available for Preliminary Multiple or Single Subject Teaching Credential holders who meet the following requirements:
  • Completed an SB 2042 Credential Program on or after August 30, 2004,
  • Show renewal code R14I on their credential,
  • Are employed by a California school; and
  • Are enrolled in an approved Clear Credential Program.

Three Year Extensions

  • Available for Preliminary Multiple or Single Subject Teaching Credential holders who meet the following requirement:
  • Completed an SB 2042 Program on or after August 30, 2004,
  • Show renewal code R14I on their credential; and
  • Have never been employed, or were employed for one year or less, as a teacher in California.

Requesting an Extension:

  • Completed application (form 41-4). Clearly mark the application as an "Appeal" at the top right hand corner of the form
  • Application processing fee
  • A letter from the applicant stating the circumstances or reasons which necessitate the appeal
  • Additional forms, if required (see Leaflet AL-3)
    • Two Year Extension: Completed Form CL-885

    • Extensions of employer restricted Emergency Permits (must be submitted through employer; see employer for required form(s)).
  • Original transcripts and/or photocopies of exam scores verifying any requirements that were completed
  • Documentation verifying the circumstances creating the need to request an appeal

Questions should be directed to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
