PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL-AGE PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIAL

The Pennsylvania School-Age Professional Credential (SAPC) is administered by the Pennsylvania Key through the five Regional Keys.  It was developed to promote quality services for children and families by providing specific standards, professional development and evaluation of school-age practitioners.  Individuals interested in acquiring the SAPC must meet specific eligibility requirements, complete 120 hours of coursework addressing the thirteen (13) Functional Areas and complete a collection of information including a Portfolio, Resource File, Observations and Family Questionnaires.  The final step in the process is an on-site assessment review with a SAPC Assessor.  This credential is recognized in the Keystone STARS Continuous Quality Improvement System as meeting Level III on the Pennsylvania Early Learning Keys to Quality Career Lattice.
