Teacher conference

Fresno Unified’s New Teacher Induction Program is fully accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing to clear preliminary general education, multiple subject and single subject credentials.  Beginning teachers with a SB 2042 preliminary credential participate in a two-year state approved induction program, ideally during their first few years as a contracted teacher, in order to complete the state’s requirements to earn a professional clear credential. This two-year job-embedded experience is designed to support the professional development of newly credentialed, beginning teachers in areas of the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP), California Teacher Induction Program Standards, and California adopted academic standards. Beginning Special Education teachers holding a preliminary Education Specialist credential may clear that credential through the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools.

The New Teacher Induction Program has been locally designed and implemented to provide formative assessment of teaching practices and individualized support for new teachers.  Each new teacher is assigned an Instructional Coach.  Support is intended to help new teachers take effective actions that will result in connected, strategic, and intentional improvements in performance.
