No. There are a few events that you will attend without your candidate. However, your candidate is to be accompanied by their mentor at every event, without exception. If you cannot make it, you will need to arrange with another mentor at your district to cover your candidate for that event. You also need to inform your candidate so that they are not lost and know who they are supposed to sit with for help at the event, and to inform Induction staff so that we know the candidate is not without a mentor at an event.

You must possess, or be in the process of applying for, one or more of the following:

  • a current California Preliminary Multiple Subject credential
  • a current California Preliminary Single Subject credential
  • a current California Preliminary Education Specialist credential
  • a current California Level I Education Specialist credential

Also, you must be currently employed as a teacher under the credential you are trying to clear.
