     Red Carpet Welcome
     
    You're on Your Way... 
     
    If you had the opportunity to experience our District's legendary "Red Carpet Welcome", then you are already on your way to completing your requirements for induction.  Our Red Carpet Welcome is the first of five compensated days of orientation that we typically offer for our new hire educators.
     
    Everyone who is new to our District is required to attend these five days of orientation.  If you were hired after our orientation begins, don't worry.  You will have the opportunity to attend our orientation the following year.  The Red Carpet Welcome is an experience that you don't want to miss!  
     
    Our induction program in 27J Schools is designed for educators new to our district, whether they hold an initial, professional, or alternative license. Meetings with mentors will be differentiated for initial and professional license holders. These requirements fall under the recommended best practices of a CDE-approved district induction program.
     
     
    The 27J Schools Induction Program guidelines require:
    • Attend 36 hours of New Teacher Orientation (compensated)
    • Attend one of two New Educator Networking Nights (Nov. 12 or Feb. 11))
    • Fill out Teacher Needs Assessment
    • Meet regularly with Building Mentor 
    • Reflect in your learning log (professional growth goal)
    • Share a reflection from your learning log to Induction Google Classroom quarterly (link will be sent to you)
    • Participate in and contribute to building-based PLCs and collaboration times
    • Observe colleagues and document in your learning log (strongly encouraged)
    • Optional: Engage in district professional learning opportunities

    If you were hired after October 29, 2018, you will participate in Induction in the 2019-20 school year.
