Join West Contra Costa Unified School District's Teacher Induction Program!
We invite you to be a part of TIP, which engages educators through a community of support and professional growth. Induction serves as the process by which a California teacher earns his/her/their Clear Credential. Our two-year program is an inquiry-based program in which each participating teacher (PT) develops a job-embedded and individualized inquiry that focuses on self-determined aspects of his/her/their teaching practice.
Are you eligible for TIP?
- Are you employed by the West Contra Costa Unified School District?
If your answer to Part I was "Yes," please move on to Part II! If your answer was "No," please contact us and we will help connect you with the appropriate program.
- Do you currently hold a Preliminary Credential in at least one of the following areas?
- Multiple Subject
- Single Subject
- Education Specialist
- Are you the teacher of record for at least one class in the area in which your credential authorizes you to teach?
If your answer to the previous questions are "Yes," then you are eligible to enroll in TIP! Enrollment will begin in July 2023 and we will be in touch soon!
Please note: Enrollment for all CA-prepared teachers closed October 1, 2022. If your preparation program was completed out-of-state or out-of-country and you are currently waiting for CTC to process your application and credentials, please contact us for an enrollment deadline.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact us through our TIP Inquiry/Request Form.
Additional information and resources for Participating Teachers (Preliminary credentialed teachers) and Support Providers (mentors who are seasoned teachers) can be found on their individual pages.
