BTSA Induction

Our Mission: 

 To develop and retain quality teachers, close the student achievement gap, alleviate the isolation new teacher’s experience, and promote continuous improvement and reflection on teaching practice.


 The Marin County BTSA Induction Program is a countywide consortium that provides beginning teachers with two years of job-embedded structured support based on the New Teacher Center Formative Assessment System (FAS). The formative assessment tools help new teachers examine and improve teaching practices, understand the school community, and learn about their students. The program provides a smooth transition into the complex responsibilities of culturally responsive teaching, increases the retention of teachers, and improves learning opportunities for students.
