CLEAR Your CA Credential with CCCOE TIP 

The Contra Costa County Office of Education Teacher Induction Program (TIP) is dedicated to providing new teachers with an individualized, authentic, job-embedded, and equity-centered induction experience that is facilitated by highly skilled mentors. 

Experienced educators have the opportunity to deepen their professional practice, develop coaching skills, and scale their impact by becoming a mentor for those newest to the profession.  All of this is in service of moving toward more inclusive and equitable environments and outcomes for students. 

TIP is accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. We partner with local districts and agencies throughout California to offer an in-person or fully online professional Teacher Induction Program.

What is Teacher Induction?
Our comprehensive and locally designed Induction program provides a two-year, job-embedded, system of mentoring, support, and professional learning that begins during a teacher's first years of teaching. The program is designed to improve teacher practice as measured by the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) and student achievement through intentional goal-setting, inquiry, self-assessment, and reflection. 

Participating Teachers meet weekly with an experienced mentor and create an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP), a road map for professional growth and development. Upon completion of the CCCOE Teacher Induction Program, participating teachers are recommended for a California Clear Teaching Credential.  

A one-year Early Completion Option (ECO) is available to Participating Teachers who meet eligibility criteria. 

Who is Eligible?
Teachers holding a Preliminary Multiple, Single Subject, Education Specialist, and/or Level 1 Education Specialist credentials who need to complete teacher induction for their Professional Clear Credential.  Candidates must be teaching a minimum of one course in the area(s) they are authorized to teach as indicated by the preliminary credential. 

What is the Program Fee? 

$2250 per participating teacher/per year (plus an additional mentor stipend).
