BTSA is the Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment Program that was established by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and the California Department of Education (CDE). Induction funding from the state is available during the preliminary credential holder’s first two years of teaching.  The South Bay BTSA Consortium is a CCTC-approved Induction Program through which participating teachers demonstrate competence and extend pre-service knowledge with the guidance of an experienced teacher known as a support provider and proudly serves the teachers of:
