After months of planning and training, Caleb Greenwood School has won International Baccalaureate authorization, making it SCUSD’s first IB World School, Primary Years Program (PYP).
“This is major accomplishment for Caleb Greenwood and our district,” said SCUSD Superintendent José L. Banda. “It’s not easy to meet IB’s high standards for curriculum, instruction and school climate. I congratulate the Caleb community for working so hard to bring this program to our students and families.”
SCUSD’s goal is always to encourage a lifelong love of reading in our students and community. Summer is a great time to get into reading, visit local libraries and check out the many interesting programs available.
We’ve compiled a variety of free reading resources for kids and teens to explore this summer.
Beginning teachers who participate in Induction experience enhanced professional growth and development, and become increasingly attached to teaching through a rich and thoughtful induction process. Each teacher gains a professional voice by working in close concert with experienced colleagues and trained support providers to chart their progress through the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
From 1988 through 1992 the California Department of Education and Commission on Teacher Credentialing sponsored the California New Teacher Project (CNTP), a pilot study examining alternative strategies for supporting and assessing new teachers. Based on the positive outcomes and findings of the CNTP, the Legislature and the Governor enacted SB1422 in 1992, establishing an Induction Program. Induction’s purpose is to implement cost-effective models for new teacher development in order to “transform academic preparation into practical success in the classroom, [and] to retain greater numbers of capable beginning teachers….(Ed. Code Section 44279.2(a)).”
Purpose – To create and deliver beginning teacher-centered quality services.
