The California Agricultural Teachers’ Induction Program (CATIP) sprang out of the need to induct new agriculture teachers into the dynamic field of agriculture education as identified by the Vision 2030 process of the California Agricultural Teachers’ Association (CATA) that began in 2013. CATIP is a consortium built for the purpose of providing alternative services meant to support and mentor California Agriculture Teachers in their first two years. As a formal partnership between the Davis Joint Unified School District and the CATA, CATIP inducts preliminary agriculture teachers into the profession through requirements set forth by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). CATIP provides relevant mentoring and support for early career agriculture teachers through a combination of programs from the Yolo-Solano Center for Teacher Credentialing, CTE TEACH, and the network and professional development of the CATA. The California Agricultural Teachers’ Induction Program is meant to be a two-year program.
Meetings for the information or consultation in regard to the California Agricultural Teachers' Induction Program or CTE Credentialing can only be done by scheduling a video conference or phone call in advance. We will not be holding any office hours through the foreseeable future due to mandatory social distancing set forth by the State of California. Please check back here for any updates.
