Individualized Development Plan

Prior to exiting the program, all preliminary preparation programs must provide their candidates with an Individual Development Plan (IDP) template which the new teacher will then take to the teacher induction program. Your Induction program begins after you have been recommended for a Preliminary Credential and will lead to a recommendation for you to receive a Clear Credential.

The IDP is developed collaboratively with the candidate, program supervisor, and the district employed support personnel (i.e. cooperating teacher, collaborating teacher, or mentor) and must address the adopted Teacher Performance Expectations (TPEs), identifying the areas where the candidate has strengths and recommendations for professional growth goals. This information can include, but is not limited to, results on performance assessments, course assignments, observations during clinical practice, and other key indicators used by the program.
