New Teacher Induction Program

MUHSD New Teacher Induction

The MUHSD Induction Program engages preliminary credentialed teachers in a job-embedded program of support and professional growth to fulfill the requirements to obtain a California Clear Credential for Multiple Subjects, Single Subjects and Education Specialist credentials. Our Induction program supports each candidate's development and growth in the teaching profession by building on the knowledge and skills gained during their Preliminary Preparation program. Our local district program is based on the California Induction Standards that were adopted in 2016 with an emphasis on the application of the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) and “just in time” support.
