The Manteca Unified School District Teacher Induction Program is a state approved two-year induction program. It is an individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support, and professional learning that begins in the teacher’s first year of teaching after completion of his/her preliminary credential. Candidates receive structured support and formative assessment (observation and feedback) from an experienced teacher while working through an Individual Learning Plan.
The Individual Learning Plan (ILP) blends teaching knowledge with performance, through a “plan, teach, reflect, apply” process. The ILP integrates the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP), Induction Standards, and the California Content Standards. Candidates who complete all requirements of the MUSD Teacher Induction Program will be recommended for a clear credential.
