Temporary County Certificates

KCSOS Credential Services has the authority to issue a Temporary County Certificate (TCC) to a teacher candidate after obtaining all required documentation and determining that the candidate qualifies for a California teaching credential. Temporary County Certificates will not be granted by KCSOS for staff appeals unless the appeal is signed by the district superintendent.

A TCC authorizes the teacher candidate to provide the services that the credential specifies in a California public school classroom (on the date indicated on the TCC) while the document is being processed at the state level.

  • A TCC is valid for four months from the date of issuance.
