Program Mission Statement
The program's purpose is to provide a safe environment which supports teachers as they grow in their professional practice and transform into lifelong, reflective practitioners. SDCOE Teacher Induction endeavors to build upon teacher preparation experiences and expand skill levels in the ability to reflect on student progress and instructional strategies.
SDCOE Teacher Effectiveness and Preparation Programs will continue to operate during the COVID-19 school closures. Keeping in mind that some candidates do not currently have access to the classroom, individual programs have plans in place to accommodate those situations with modified assignments. Due to the closure, the best form of communication at this time is via e-mail.
The San Diego County Office of Education offers a two-year commission approved program to teachers seeking to clear their preliminary credential. California Teacher Induction is a State-led program in conjunction with the California Department of Education (CDE) and the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). California Teacher Induction programs are locally designed and implemented.
