Teacher Induction Program (Formerly BTSA)
Teachers with a Preliminary Teaching Credential are served during their first two years in the profession through the TUSD Induction Program (formerly BTSA), which provides formative assessment and individualized support. The TUSD Induction Program provides a smooth transition into the complex responsibilities of teaching, increases the retention of teachers, and improves the learning opportunities for their K-12 students.
Teaching Candidates work closely with an experienced mentor teachermand are expected to attend monthly professional development workshops. Completion of the TUSD Induction Program can also lead to a Clear Credential. TUSD Induction is co-sponsored by the California Department of Education and California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
