Conditions of Learning

Supporting Local Districts

Conditions of learning pertain to: 1) the degree to which teachers are appropriately assigned, and fully credentialed; access to standards-aligned instructional materials; maintenance of school facilities; 2) implementation of state standards including academic and performance standards adopted by the state board of education; and 3) student enrollment in a broad course of study.

Here are some of the ways California’s college and career readiness organizations support districts with conditions of learning:

  • On average, 42% of courses offered by college and career readiness organizations articulate with local community colleges.
  • On average, 92% of college and career readiness courses offer work-based learning activities such as internships, field trips, guest speakers, and job shadowing.
  • California’s college and career readiness organizations may receive accreditation from regional and/or national organizations.
  • Teachers are credentialed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
