Recommendation To: Teacher Credentialing, California Commission on

To make its strategic plan a more useful mechanism for accomplishing its mission, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (commission) should ensure that, to the extent possible, its goals have timelines and are measureable. Further, the commission should periodically evaluate and track its progress towards meeting its goals.

Response

As stated in our previous response, the Commission considered and revised its Strategic Plan, which was adopted during its December 2014 Commission meeting. The Plan calls for the Commission to "monitor response times for processing applications, investigations allegations of misconduct...to ensure timeliness and a high level of operational effectiveness."

During its August 2015 Commission meeting, the Division of Professional Practices (DPP) presented its Annual Report. As part of the annual report, Commission staff mirrored the methodology of your 2011 audit to review the timeliness of action in the DPP. The timelines review indicates the Commission made significant improvements in timeliness, reducing the average time for case completion from 683 days to 392 days.
