Early Completion Option



Senate Bill 57 (Scott) provides for an Early Completion Option for teachers who hold a Preliminary Multiple Subject or Single Subject Credential.  The Early Completion Option (ECO) allows individuals to complete a commission-approved professional teacher Induction program in less than the two years of the full-length program. It is equally rigorous as the full-length program.  Upon successful completion of the Induction requirements, Candidates are recommended to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) for a Professional Clear Credential.


The intent of this legislation is to serve experienced and exceptional teachers enrolling during their first year of Induction. Interested Candidates will need to demonstrate that they have the knowledge, skills, abilities, and competencies required of all Candidates who complete the two-year program.  If upon review of the requirements, a Candidate feels s/he meets the criteria, an application is submitted.  Applications may be obtained from the EBIC Office or website.  


Application Process

  1. Attend the mandatory ECO Orientation as scheduled.

  2. Submit the Application Packet including all the following:

  • Documentation of a minimum of two (2) years prior teaching experience as the teacher of record in a K-12 teaching assignment.

  • Evidence of exceptional teaching practice during prior professional experience with a minimum of three (3) teacher performance evaluations. Marks must show the highest level of expertise.

  • Performance evaluation from the current evaluator. Marks must show the highest possible level of expertise.

  • Three (3) letters of recommendations from educational leaders who have witnessed your teaching expertise.  Letters should speak to your teaching expertise and professional or ethical conduct.

  • A well-written rationale explaining how you meet the criteria for ECO. The rationale should reflect on your exemplary practice, attitudes, professionalism, leadership and  commitment to teaching practice.

    3.  Upon acceptance and approval of all submitted documents, a classroom observation will be scheduled.  Evidence

         will be collected based on the Continuum of Teaching Practice for the California Standards for the Teaching Practice.

         Observations must be aligned with descriptors in the Integrating and/or Innovating performance level.


Acceptance as an ECO Credential Candidate requires maintenance of exceptional performance and professionalism.  All requirements must be met on time.  Failure to meet deadlines will result in reclassification as a Year One Candidate.
