Teacher Induction Program

Imperial County Consortium Teacher Induction Program (formerly Known as BTSA) Banner

The Imperial County Consortium Teacher Induction Program is accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and was developed to support the professional growth of preliminary-credentialed, beginning teachers to fulfill the necessary requirements for the California Clear Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist credentials.  Induction is designed to provide on site, job embedded mentoring to support growth towards mastery of the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTPs).

To be eligible to enroll in the Imperial County Consortium Teacher Induction Program, teachers must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a valid (not expired) Preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject and/or Education Specialist teaching credential issued by California
  • Be employed by an Imperial County Consortium Teacher Induction program participating district/site in an assignment the preliminary credential authorizes

“If we create a culture where every teacher believes they need to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better, there is no limit to what we can achieve.”

- Dylan Wiliam
