Tri-County Induction Program

(formerly BTSA)


The Tri-County Induction Program, formerly the BTSA Induction Program,  is an accredited  induction program that fulfills professional clear credential requirements for multiple and single subject, education specialist, and career technical education credential holders.  Utilizing a locally designed formative assessment system,  credential candidates apply pre-service knowledge and experience with the assistance of a trained Mentor.  Based on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP), support is specific, job-embedded and evidence-based.  The Induction Program partners with the candidates’ school site leadership, district office leadership and county office leadership to provide a contextualized growth experience.  We are committed to accelerating educator effectiveness to accelerate student learning.
