About the Bilingual Credential

The Bilingual Credential is available to students interested in teaching in a bilingual elementary school classroom. The credential authorizes the holder to teach in any self-contained bilingual or regular classroom in which one teacher is responsible for all the subjects commonly taught. In addition, it authorizes the teacher to provide instruction in the primary language. Also, the Bilingual Credential credential authorizes teachers to teach in designated English Language Development (ELD) classrooms, and to provide specially designated content instruction in English.
