California Internship Teacher Preparation Programs

Internship programs provide opportunities for intern teachers to engage in systematic study and supervised practice of teaching while they serve as instructors-of-record with compensation.

BTSA is Induction!

In accordance with Education Code section 44259(c), induction programs may be offered by school districts, county offices of education, and/or institutions of higher education. Section 44279.2(c)of the Education Code allows local education agencies to apply for and receive state funding to support induction programs through the Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment System, a program that is administered jointly by the California Department of Education (CDE)and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).

In order to receive BTSA funds, participating school districts must develop and implement teacher induction programs that meet standards adopted by the Commission and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
