The Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Part A. Section 3121, requires each Title III Limited English Proficient Student Program subgrantee to report on language instruction programs and activities it conducts. The CDE has created an online survey to comply with this requirement to report on the 2015-16 school year. The survey questions relate to the implementation of language instruction programs in your local educational agency during the 2015-16 school year, whether or not paid for with Title III funds.

As you may be aware, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) adopted revised General Education Induction Program Standards and Preconditions in December 2015. This spring, our Marin County Teacher Induction Program was then required to develop a transition plan. Our program had the opportunity to work with the New Teacher Center and our district leadership team to design our initial plan. This plan addresses where changes will be made to our existing program and how significant the changes will be. Because this plan is not binding, we will be able to improve upon it as the team sees fit. In future reports to CTC, we will report on actual changes made.
In the fall, at our October 14th leadership team meeting, we plan to review and discuss this transition plan. Attached is an updated list of our current leadership representatives. Click here to review and let us know if we need to update your districts's representatives.
