     California Subject Examination for Languages Other Than English (CSET: LOTE):

    Master Plan Verification helps teachers subsidize some examination costs for obtaining the BCLAD authorization by providing a voucher for the CSET: LOTE Exam. Current LAUSD Full-Time Teachers who have passed the district fluency exam at the “A” or “B” Level or complete an approved training may qualify for a CSET: LOTE Examination Voucher. A CSET: LOTE Voucher will cover the cost of the exam and the Program Management Fee upon verification of “A” or “B” Level Fluency, or for any subtests that an approved training has been completed and verified. Master Plan Verification does NOT cover any additional fees including any late registration fees. Once a qualifying fluency level is verified or an approved preparation class has been completed, one must submit a voucher request. If an employee has district fluency at the “A” or “B” Level, but does not pass a section of the exam, the employee can register for an approved training and request another voucher upon its completion.
