Teacher Induction Programs
  • The iCAAP Teacher Induction  Program prepares Education Specialists and District Intern graduates for the California Clear Credential. The intent of the 24-month program is to provide an opportunity for each candidate to grow in their capacity as a teacher through an individualized program of reflection supported by like-credentialed Lead Mentors.


    The Teacher Induction Program incorporates:

    • assignment of like-credentialed Lead Mentor within 30 days of enrollment.
    • development of Individual Learning Plan (ILP) goals within 60 days of enrollment: The ILP is designed and implemented solely for the professional growth and development of the participating candidate/teacher and not for evaluation for employment purposes.
    • reflection and coaching which is grounded in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTPs) and includes the processes of individualized goal-setting based on self-reflection and collaboration with the program Lead Mentor and school site administrators.
    • an individualized system of intensive support from highly trained like-credentialed Instructional Faculty Lead Mentors, staff, and cohort members.
    • a collaborative cohort model integrated with one-on-one coaching conversations, small group participation and interaction through the use of innovative technology such video recording, real time video conferencing, and more.
    • authentic job embedded tasks and classroom-focused mentoring.
