Induction Program Grievance Process
The Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) Induction Program seeks to provide professional learning opportunities in optimal working and learning environments. If an applicant or program participating teacher questions application procedures, program prerequisites, program requirements, policies and procedures, program extension or deferral requests, equivalency requests, credential eligibility reviews, or other program related issues, the first step is to address the concern with the relevant party, such as the support provider or coordinator. The next step is to reach out to the Induction Program Coordinator to support a plan and resolution.
If the concern is not resolved, the grievance shall be submitted, in writing following the SCUSD Induction Appeal process. The Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction will review the concerns, meet with the program participating teacher and investigate the concerns. A decision will be made regarding the grievance and the participant will be notified of the decision within 10 days. Appeals may be submitted to the Chief Academic Officer, within 10 days of notification. A copy of all documentation related to the grievance will be kept on file.
Applicants will receive information about the SCUSD Induction Appeal Process in the SCUSD Induction Handbook, which is provided to all participating teachers as part of their Induction Program materials upon enrollment to the program. Information regarding the SCUSD Induction Appeal Process is also provided upon request.
