Introduction to BSD Induction Program

The Boise School District and the Boise Education Association are continuously striving to provide the highest possible quality of education. We recognize that for students to succeed in learning, teachers must succeed in teaching. Out of this shared vision the Peer Assistance Program was established. One of the goals of this program is to provide collegial and instructional support to new teachers.

  • All new certified staff receive orientation and induction information during the New Hire Opening Meetings held before school starts. Attendance is required and all attendees receive a stipend.

    • Student Services Supervisors provide induction support tailored for counselors, social workers, and nurses.

    • Special Education Supervisors provide induction support tailored for special education personnel (teachers, SLP, etc.).


  • If you are in the first year of teaching, the Peer Assistance Program categorizes you as a New to Profession Teacher. District induction requirements must be completed during the first year of employment. Refer to the Welcome Email from Human Resources Certified Staff for your designation.


  • If you come to the Boise District with experience that is recognized by the District, the Peer Assistance Program considers you a New to District Teacher. District induction requirements must be completed in the first two years of employment. Refer to the Welcome Email from Human Resources Certified Staff for your designation.
