    Credential Validation and Registration

    The Commission on Teacher Credentialing has made information available to provide immediate access to credential information. The credential information serves as the official record of certification. Changes, updates, and/or corrections made to records may take up to 2-4 weeks to be reflected on the website database. 
    All persons hired by Marin County public school districts for positions requiring administrative, teaching, service, and special education credentials, as well as other permits and certificates must register their authorizing documents with their employing school district. The districts notify the Credentials Analyst of all new hires. 

    MCOE Credentials Department

    The Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) Credentials Analyst serves as a liaison between the County public schools and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), which is the autonomous state standards board for the state of California and issues California credentials.

    One of the Commission’s responsibilities is to ensure appropriate assignment of teaching and non-teaching certificated staff.  The Credentials Department supports and assists school districts, certificated employees and credential applicants in the following:
