TUSD Induction Eligibility
In order to be admitted into the Turlock Unified School District Induction Program, a teacher must be employed by TUSD and meet the following requirements:
Possess one of the following California preliminary credentials:
- Multiple Subject
- Single Subject
- Education Specialist
Or possess a preliminary credential from out of state (Multiple, Single, Educational Specialist)
Or possess a clear credential from another state that does not offer an English Learner authorization (Multiple, Single, Educational Specialist)
Or possess any of the above and enroll mid-program from another program at the beginning of the year. The candidate will bring or request from the former program a transportability document to prove year one completion. *This is true for candidates who leave the TUSD Induction Program as well. They may request a transportability document be sent to their new district. Please note that according to the State of California, if the candidate is not hired in another California school district and there is a gap in teaching, participation in an induction program may not occur until the candidate is employed.
