APS Induction Program
Welcome to Aurora Public Schools!
We are very excited that you are beginning your career in Aurora Public Schools. It is an honor to serve our students and it is our goal to ensure you have the support and resources necessary to become a successful educator in APS.
Who needs to participate in an induction program?
Licensed staff, who have an initial-level license issued by the Colorado Department of Education, and have not already completed a state-approved induction program in CO, must successfully complete the APS Induction Program before being recommended for state professional-level licensure.
APS requires all new staff in APS with an initial license complete an induction program during their first year in Aurora Public Schools.
If you're not sure CDE requires an induction program for the license type you currently hold, you will need to check with CDE to find out if you are required to complete one.
If you have already completed an induction program with another CDE-approved district or agency, you will not be required to participate in the APS Induction Program. If that is the case, please scan and email your completion certificate to Shawn Graziani, Smgraziani@aps.k12.co.us in order to be exempted from participation.

How do I track my course requirements?
It is VERY important to keep track of ALL your professional learning attended. The classes/trainings you attend for induction, will only be counted toward your program after they are recorded as completed and have the proper credit issued, on your SABA professional learning transcript.
Please Note: If you do not complete Induction in APS before moving to another district, you will need to complete that district’s induction program from the beginning. The APS Induction Program is Not Transferable .
