Teacher Induction Support Providers

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Being a Support Provider is a highly rewarding position. ​Not only do you have the opportunity to coach another teacher throughout his/her first two years of the profession, you also receive high quality training and experience that will make you an asset to your school community. SDCOE Teacher Induction provides training and ongoing support to ensure the best support is provided for both Participating Teachers and Support Providers. ​​SDCOE’s Teacher Induction​ Program is accredited through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. As accountability is high, the program relies heavily on Support Providers committed to both teacher and student success. With your support, teachers within the program will receive a clear credential upon completion of the program​​.  ​

We ask that Support Providers commit to the following:

  1. Participate in required two days of Support Provider Skill Building​, Powerschool Learning training, document reviews, and other professional development activities as required. (See dates below)
  2. Develop a trusting, meaningful, non-evaluative and supportive relationship with the Participating Teacher characterized by openness, sharing, confidentiality, and reflective conversations.
  3. Willingness and ability to be an excellent professional role model with effective interpersonal and communicative skills.
  4. Provide support for the Participating Teacher that builds on pre-service education and new classroom experiences, and leads to effective and reflective professional practice. (growth mindset)
  5. Knowledge of Common Core State Standards, English Language Learners, special education, and equity in general education settings
  6. Assist and monitor the Participating Teacher in completing action research, gathering evidence, and completing all program completion requirements to be submitted through Powerschool Learning within the given timeline.
  7. Review Participating Teacher work to ensure it is complete and meets requirements prior to the review and submission of work in Powerschool Learning (Verification Meetings)
  8. Make contact with each assigned Participating Teacher for approximately one hour each week of the school year to provide support in meeting program requirements. This contact includes classroom observations, reflections, coaching conversations, action research support, evidence completion, email, phone calls and any other contact as needed to assist the participating teacher in successfully meeting program requirements.
  9. Communicate regularly with the District Lead should any questions or issues arise.
  10. Complete monthly logs as required by the program.​

​Requirements to be a Support Provider:

  1. ​​​​A cleared California credential

  2. ​​​Three or more years of full-time teaching (not including student teaching)​

  3. Required Training​:​ Support Provider training is required for all new Support Providers, including Support Providers who are new to the SDCOE Teacher Induction program. SP Skill Building is a two day commitment. If a Support Provider cannot attend the two days of SP Skill Building, he/she may not be a support provider. This commitment ensures Pa​​rticipating Teachers will receive the appropriate level of support.​​

  4. A Support Provider should not have a personal relationship with their Participating Teacher. (Personal relationship = family, close friends, spouse)

​​​If you are interested in serving as a Support Provider, please contact your Teacher Induction Program Coordinator (District Lead) for an application form. Support Providers are selected and assigned using a fair and timely process that considers pedagogical needs and local context. This process is monitored consistently.
