arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Cautionary Notice: AB 97 (Ch. 47, Statutes of 2013) repealed Education Code 42605, which provided temporary flexibility for specified "Tier 3" categorical programs, and instead redirects the funding for those categorical programs into the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) (Education Code 42238.01-42251). The supplemental and concentration grant portions of the LCFF may be used for any schoolwide or districtwide educational purpose in accordance with state regulations to be adopted by January 31, 2014, with a goal of increasing or improving services for English learners, foster youth, and students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Certain requirements related to Tier 3 categorical program(s) in the following policy or regulation are no longer applicable.

The Board of Trustees recognizes that intensive professional development and support will help beginning teachers apply their academic preparation more effectively in the classroom and result in greater district retention of capable beginning teachers. The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that first- and second-year teachers receive guidance to help them make an effective transition into the teaching profession.

(cf. 4131 - Staff Development)

The Superintendent or designee shall inform beginning teachers about induction programs that are available to help them fulfill the requirements of the professional clear multiple- or single-subject teaching credential pursuant to Education Code 44259.
