The New EUSD Teacher Support (NETs) is a two-year California State Commission approved professional teacher induction program designed to provide job-embedded, individualized support and opportunities for eligible first and second-year teacher candidates to complete California state requirements for attaining a clear credential.
The NETs Induction program supports teacher candidate development and growth in the progression by building on the knowledge and skills gained during the preliminary preparation program and supporting teacher candidates with a robust mentoring system that helps each candidate work to meet the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
Through inquiry-based action research, teachers will develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) that includes professional growth goals and a description of how the candidate will work to meet those goals, defined and measurable outcomes, and planned opportunities to reflect on progress in their practice, as well as modify the ILP as needed. The ILP must be designed and implemented solely for the professional growth and development of the NETs teacher candidate and not for evaluation for employment purposes.
Teacher candidates will demonstrate their growth, ability to reflect, and successful execution of in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP). Upon successful completion and demonstration, candidates will be recommended for a clear credential.
Program requirements include:
Possession of a preliminary or Level 1 credential that has Induction as a renewal requirement.
Current employment in EUSD and work with a core group of students. Induction is a condition of employment for EUSD teacher candidates with preliminary credentials. This support is a valuable part of your continued success.
Teacher candidates will receive on average of not less than one hour per week of individualized support/mentoring coordinated and/or provided by the NETs mentor.
"Each Induction program must be designed to provide a two-year, individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support and professional learning that begins in the teacher’s first year of teaching." — Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)
