Level II Induction Requirement

  • Level II certification requires completion of a PDE-approved induction program to include a mentoring component for all newly employed professional educators.
  • Public school entities in PA are required to provide a PDE-approved induction program.   Induction completed out of state cannot be substituted for the PA required induction.
  • Private school entities are not required to provide a PDE-approved induction program, but this requirement still needs to be met in order to obtain a Level II certificate.  Contact your employer to verify if they have a PDE-approved induction program.
  • If you have not completed a PDE-approved induction or are unsure if you have, contact your employer.
  • For additional information on policies and guidelines, please see CSPG 20-Induction.
