The Induction experience supports the growth and development of its candidates by building on the knowledge and skills gained during their Preliminary Preparation program. Each candidate creates an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP)  through which they establish professional goals based on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP).

Long Beach Unified School District supports beginning teachers with the following preliminary credentials:

  • Preliminary Multiple Subject
  • Preliminary Single Subject
  • Preliminary Education Specialist- Mild/Moderate
  • Preliminary Education Specialist- Moderate/Severe
