Teacher Induction Program (Formerly BTSA)


Tustin Unified Induction Program strives to be a 2-year support system that builds upon the teacher preparation program, enabling candidates to develop a deeper understanding of student achievement, self-reflection, and professional growth as defined by the California Standards for the Teaching Profession within the context of their own classroom of learners. Through the guidance of a mentor, candidates build their capacity to be reflective and collaborative practitioners while establishing instructional strategies that support student success. Completion of the program will result in the recommendation of the candidate’s Clear Credential.

TUSD Induction is co-sponsored by the California Department of Education and California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
