FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Special Education Program
In addition to its on-campus Education Specialist program, CSU, Chico offers on-the-job training and support for special education teachers in 57 school districts throughout northern California. Nearly one half of course requirements are available in a distance education, online format. Specialized assistance is available to teachers of pupils with emotional and behavioral disorders. CSU, Chico’s Special Education Program has been noted for its innovative programs and nationally recognized as a leader in addressing the shortage of credentialed special education teachers.
“The federal scholarships contribute greatly to the recruitment and retention of highly qualified candidates,” said director of the special education internship, Michelle Cepello, PhD. “In addition, the internship program aligns with a priority of the University’s Strategic Plan, which is to establish partnerships that answer critical regional and state workforce needs in the area of K-12 education.”
