Chino Valley Teacher Induction Program (CV-TIP)
Teresa Shockley, Coordinator
The Chino Valley Unified School District’s Teacher Induction Program is designed to provide an individualized, two-year, job-embedded, system of weekly support and professional learning that begins the teacher’s first year of teaching. The intent of this induction program is to support a candidate’s development and growth as a professional educator by building on the knowledge and skills gained during a Preliminary Preparation program through a robust mentoring system designed to help each candidate work to meet the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
Each Candidate receives an average of not less than one hour per week of individualized support/mentoring coordinated and/or provided by a qualified mentor who provides multiple levels of support in the form of “just in time” mentoring, as well as consistent and meaningful collaboration, reflection, and professional learning, based on each candidate’s individual needs, goals, job assignment, and interests, in order to guide each candidate in developing enduring professional skills. Candidates meet as a whole group four times each year, for programmatic information sessions.
To be eligible to participate in the Induction Program, the teacher candidate must hold a preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject or Education Specialist credential at the time of enrollment. All participating teachers must be employed in their credentialed area and are actively teaching.
Candidates who have at least two years of successful teaching experience may apply for the Early Completion Option (ECO), which provides a process and structure for eligible individuals to complete the Induction Program in one year. It is available to those candidates who meet the program’s ECO criteria.
Candidates who successfully complete the Induction Program are recommended for a Clear Single Subject, Clear Multiple Subject or Clear Education Specialist credential.
*Teachers with out-of-state or out-of-country credentials may need to complete additional requirements to clear credentials.Access the tabs on the left to find information to learn more about our program.
