Teacher Induction Program (TIP)

The Teacher Induction Program is designed to offer support for beginning teachers who have finished a credentialing program and who currently hold (or have applied for) a preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject or Education Specialist credential. As outlined in SB2042, induction is the pathway to a Clear credential. Created by SB1422 in 1992, the Induction Program was established based on research gathered from the California New Teacher Project. This research identified the need to provide beginning teachers with focused induction support that would be at a sufficient level of intensity to make a difference in the performance, retention, and satisfaction of the participating teachers.

The vision for the Teacher Induction Program (TIP) in SBCUSD is to prepare and support new teachers through a robust and comprehensive mentoring program. Our mentoring program matches novice teachers with skilled and effective teachers who coach and model how to create a safe and welcoming environment in which all students can learn and succeed. With their mentor, teachers develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which outlines their goals and captures their professional development activities as well as their growth and development as they work towards meeting their goals during the 2-year induction program.
