Induction (Beginning Teacher Support)

Welcome to the SUHSD!  Together we are Putting Students First through great teaching.

Our CTC-approved Induction Program for beginning teachers (including Interns) has been up and running since July 2016. It remains cost-free to eligible candidates.  The SUHSD is investing in its future!
