The Hart Induction Program provides credentialed teachers and administrators with a specially designed, standards-based program that eases them into the teaching or administrative profession and simultaneously offers them support and advanced training. Induction provides a bridge linking the theory and learnings acquired in the California Preliminary Credential Program to the realities of daily classroom teaching and administrative duties. A trained experienced teacher—a Mentor—is assigned to work with each new teacher in the General Education or Education Specialist Programs. In the Administrative Induction Program, new administrators work with an experienced Administrative Coach who assists with the demands and experiences associated with serving as an administrator in California schools. These mentors and coaches guide, assess, and support new professionals in meeting the complex requirements of their jobs. Upon completion of Induction, Induction Candidates are recommended for a California Clear Credential in their identified subject matter and/or educational expertise.
Please review the document below to determine your Induction needs based on the preliminary credential that was issued to you by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).
