Teacher Induction Program
The PUSD Teacher Induction Program
The Pomona Unified School District Teacher Induction Program is a two-year, individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support and professional learning that is offered to teachers holding California Preliminary Teaching Credentials. Successful completion of the program leads to a recommendation for the Clear Credential.
During the course of the two-year program, Candidates engage in self-selected action research, setting and pursuing professional growth goals related to the California Standards for the Teaching Profession. Collaborating with a Mentor who offers both assistance and encouragement, they successfully navigate these first teaching years, learning to reflect on their day-to-day classroom experiences and make evidence-based decisions that guide their future practice.
For more information about the program or about enrolling, please call the Induction Program office.
