Building a Statewide Support System for Teacher and Counselor Residency Preparation Programs

Welcome to the the Statewide Residency Technical Assistance Center (SRTAC)!

SRTAC is a collaborative initiative involving: Santa Clara, Humboldt, Sacramento, Tulare, and San Diego County Offices of Education (COE), The Residency Lab, WestEd, and the UCLA Teacher Education Program

Our mission is to deliver specialized, developmentally appropriate technical assistance and comprehensive support to residency programs across California, focusing on both Teacher and Counselor residencies. 

Funded by a grant from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), SRTAC is dedicated to enhancing the effectiveness, success, and sustainability of residency programs. For more details email

Residencies refer to educator training programs in which prospective candidates dedicate a full year working closely with an experienced mentor as they prepare for their chosen career path.

The SRTAC will serve as a pivotal resource, providing expert advice and support to program leaders within local education agencies (LEAs) and Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) throughout California.
