The Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) is seeking applications for educators who wish to participate on subject matter expert panels to align California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) assessments in the visual and performing arts (VAPA) with the newly adopted California Arts Standards for Public Schools. VAPA teachers and teacher educators, as well as individuals who advance VAPA education and programming for school-aged children outside of traditional school settings, are needed for the following areas: Art, Dance, Music, and Theatre.

March 28, 2019. Deadline extended to April 7, 2019.
• CTC is prevented by statute from providing compensation for advisory panels such as these, but travel and accommodations are provided, depending on the home location of the panel members.
