1. Public School Placement
While University of the Pacific/BATTI students’ major experience is in the school that hires them, they get 60 hours of experience during the first year and 90 hours during the summer in the public schools. Our students become regular volunteers, or Observer/Participants, serving 10-15 days in the first year. They will work with an experienced mentor teacher in diverse classrooms that have at least 1/3 English learners.

2. Additional Required Coursework and Certification
In order to receive your credential, you must fulfill several other requirements, including:

* US Constitution Class (may be waived if you have taken approved college course)
