Welcome to Educator Talent Development!

Visalia Unified School District provides accredited induction programs for employees who hold a preliminary Multiple Subject, Single Subject, Education Specialist, or Administrative Services credential.

District-Funded Mentor/Coach

Professional Learning

Candidates are provided professional learning opportunities through district content-specific meetings and individualized support to improve instructional and leadership practices.

Networking

Candidates, mentors, and coaches are provided opportunities to network with colleagues and other district support through in-person meetings, job-alike shadowing, and classroom observation tours.

Instructional/Leadership Support

Teacher and Administrative candidates attend ongoing meetings with their mentor/coach focused on individualized goals, standards, and an action research project.
