Important Information about Teacher Induction
About Teacher Induction Courses
These one-credit courses are designed to enlighten the beginning teacher’s awareness of skills, strategies, activities, and information based on what current research suggests as needs for first-year teachers. These courses are specifically for beginning teachers, and teachers returning to the profession who are mandated by their district to participate in the induction program. Teachers completing the Induction Program (2 courses) will receive two (2) CPE inservice credits. Courses in this brochure have been approved by PDE for graduate level CPE credit and are applicable to the 24 needed for Level II as well as your Act 48 requirements. CPE credit is awarded on a pass/fail basis. To meet your Teacher Induction requirements you must complete 2 courses. Participants must attend all sessions.
The Teacher Induction Action Plan should be developed after both Teacher Induction Courses have been completed. The Inductee should submit the completed Plan to Cheryl Pilch, Coordinator of Educational Services.
Act 48 CPE Credit will not be recorded in PERMS until both courses have been completed AND the Teacher Induction Action Plan has been received by the Coordinator of Educational Services.
