| What is the BCLAD?
In California, teachers who provide instruction in another language other than in English are required to receive a bilingual teaching authorization called the Bilingual, Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (BCLAD) certificate.
BCLAD Preparation Courses are typically held in the Summer
There are two ways of earning a BCLAD:
1. Going through a specific BCLAD program, or
2. Passing the state's BCLAD exam
CGU does not offer a specific BCLAD program, but it does offer coursework that helps teachers pass the Spanish BCLAD exam.
