CSUN Residency Program

The Accelerated Collaborative Teacher Residency (ACT-R) Program, offered collaboratively by the Michael D. Eisner College of Education, California State University, Northridge (CSUN) and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), is recruiting a diverse cohort of teacher candidates in special education, secondary mathematics education, and secondary science education.  Selected candidates will obtain a credential in 2 semesters through fulltime study completing coursework in the late afternoon and evening and residency assignments with experienced mentor teachers in high-need LAUSD schools.  Candidates in ACT-R are eligible for a stipend of up to $15,000 through a grant funded by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Program completers must commit to teaching in a high need school in LAUSD for a minimum of four years.
