Induction Program

The San Juan BOCES works with our member districts to provide a Colorado State Board of Education-approved Induction Program for the region. This program is offered on a yearly basis and requires registration (course information and registration below). An initial educators license is valid for three years and successful completion of induction is required for educators to move from an Initial License to a Professional License.

(Please read the information below carefully and refer to the CDE links provided at the bottom of the page if you have additional questions concerning your status and the licensing process.)
