The trend of non-traditional pathways into teaching continues. While outside the parameter of induction, our goal is simple: teacher retention in the Northstate. We are offering a program in the 2023-2024 school year for those who are serving in a classroom who are not yet credentialed, and not in an intern program, at no cost to those using our induction services. This includes candidates who are currently teaching with a Short Term Substitute Permits (STSPs) and Provisional Intern Permits (PIPs)
We coordinated with CSU, Chico, Simpson University, and North Coast School of Education to outline the steps that these candidates need to take to get into an intern program. Candidates need to enroll in prerequisites for an intern program before they can officially start a. We will help them navigate the action steps needed to be taken before the expiration of the PIP/STSP. They are welcome to use whomever they like for the internship, but we have contacts with these three semi-local Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs). We are not affiliated financially with them in any way.
This Program awards up to $20,000 to professional preparation program students approved by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and working towards earning their preliminary teaching or pupil personnel services credential.
