• California Teacher Induction Program (Lancaster-Eastside School Districts)

    Is a state-funded induction program that is locally designed and implemented to support the professional development of newly-credentialed, beginning teachers as well as provide a pathway for teachers to fulfill the requirements for the California Clear Multiple and Single Subjects Credentials.

     The Lancaster-Eastside Teacher Induction Program is the bridge that spans the stage between teacher preparation programs and full licensure through the attainment of a clear credential.  The Induction Program elements fit into three categories.

    • Individualized support of the candidate by a trained Mentor who is an experienced, proficient educator.
    • Structured program elements including "just in time" mentoring, individualized learning plans, and focus on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
    • A variety of professional development opportunities that support a participating teacher's identified professional goals as well as the goals of the class, school, and district.
