Induction Program

Welcome to the 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, Participating Teachers engage in self-selected action research, setting and pursuing professional growth goals related to the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.  Collaborating with a Support Provider 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.
