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.
There are two ways of earning a BCLAD:
1. Going through a specific BCLAD program
2. Passing the state's BCLAD exams
CGU offers coursework that helps teachers pass the Spanish BCLAD exam.
CGU does not offer a specific BCLAD program.
BCLAD Preparation Courses are typically held in the summer.
