The District offers a variety of professional development programs to address the unique needs and strengths of beginning teachers.

The MUSD Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment ( BTSA ) Induction Program is the pathway to earning a Professional Clear Teaching Credential. Teachers who have received an SB2042 Preliminary Credential participate in the Montebello Unified School District BTSA Induction Program, which provides advanced coursework and individual guidance for first and second year teachers. The Program is organized around the state content standards, the California Standards for the Teacher Profession (CSTP), and Standards. Opportunities to observe exemplary teachers in action, plan instruction, practice strategies, and dialogue about ways to improve teaching practice, are all elements of the BTSA Induction Program.

Montebello Unified School District and several local universities collaborate to provide a variety of programs for eligible teachers completing their teacher preparation programs.

All teachers new to the District attend a New Teacher orientation in the summer. At this orientation teachers learn the District goals, grade level curriculum, and effective instructional practices.
