Induction's Role

Excellent teaching and leadership is vital to every student’s success, and educator development plays a key part in the retention and effectiveness of Colorado educators. To have maximum impact on student learning, educators must develop and evolve along with their students. Induction programs help set the stage for continuous growth and support of educators at the beginning of their careers or as they transition to new organizations or new roles within an organization.

Induction Vision Statement

Every new educator, leader and special service provider participates in high-quality induction that supports their transition into the profession and their development as a professional educator committed to student success.

Educator Development Office

The CDE Educator Development team supports induction program leaders in providing excellent induction services to their new teachers, Special Service Providers (SSPs) and leaders.
