Important Information Regarding Induction Program Submission

  • Due to the newly adopted and aligned rules for educator licensure, CDE will be accepting new and updated induction program proposals. Further information for timelines to be released soon. 
  • If you plan to submit an induction program proposal, please look for application materials that will be released in the upcoming months. Also, we encourage potential applicants to look toward our Colorado Teacher, SSP and Principal Quality Standards as these are the guidelines to which Induction programs should be aligned in accordance with the Educator Licensing and Preparation Rules.

    •  View the Colorado Revised Statutes that govern Colorado Approved Induction Programs: C.R.S. 22-60.5-204

    • View the Educator Preparation and Licensing Rules regarding Colorado Approved Induction Programs.

      • You will need to navigate (in the left-hand menu) to 13.00- Approved Induction Programs (Teachers and SSPs) and 14.00- Induction Programs (Principals and Administrators).

  • Thank you for your patience around this transition, if you have additional questions or need support, please reach out to Mary Bivens at or 303-866-5194.
