New Teacher Induction

All teachers new to the profession must complete all induction components during their first year at DPS. In June of the year following your first year at DPS, if you have successfully completed the four components, DPS will issue you an induction certificate, which you will receive by email.

When you apply to the Colorado Department of Education to convert your Initial License to a Professional License, attach the Induction Certificate to your application. Learn more about licensing here.
