Certificated Credentialing

VUSD Induction Program

The Vista Unified School District Teaching Induction Program is designed to support the professional development of newly-credentialed teachers in their first year of teaching and fulfill the requirements of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.  Our program is open to newly hired full time contracted Vista Unified School District teachers who need to complete an accredited induction program to clear their preliminary teaching credential.  


The Vista Unified School District Teacher Induction Program is a two-year, individualized, job-embedded program.  We match our Participating Teachers with an Induction Mentor for coaching, mentoring and support.  Our program provides a variety of professional development opportunities for growth in the California Standards for the Teaching Profession while our Participating Teachers complete their Individual Learning Plan.  


The Vista Unified School District Teacher Induction Program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, religion, gender, mental or physical disability, sexual, gender identity/expression, family status or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law.


Secondary Credential or Authorization Program

A Secondary Credential or Authorization Program provides contracted VUSD teachers an opportunity to earn a secondary credential. The District supports the cost of a secondary methods course (if needed), subject matter examinations and study materials.


The District sponsors the Added Authorizations in Special Education Program. Teachers who are assigned work with students with specific disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury must hold specific authorizations. The District supports the cost of the course (provided by the District approved vendor) for teachers in these assignments


If you are interested in these opportunities, contact the Human Relations Department for more information.
