(2) The Commission approved program sponsor in cooperation with the California employing agency shall counsel the intern candidate and develop a plan to complete the requirements to earn a credential in the content or specialty area(s) of the intern credential. The Commission approved program sponsor, employing agency, and the intern teacher shall concur on the program planned.

(4) A minimum of 144 hours of support/mentoring and supervision shall be provided to each intern teacher per school year to coach, model, and demonstrate within the classroom, and to assist with course planning and problem-solving regarding students, curriculum, and effective teaching methodologies.
