Please plan to attend Induction from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day*

*A detailed schedule will be communicated to you at Induction.



All Induction dates and times are mandatory.  ANY conflict with these dates and times must be communicated via email to your School Leader and New to Blue at newtoblue@yesprep.org as soon as possible.



Morning sign-in begins at 9:00 AM each day.  NTB teachers are expected to arrive at Induction before sessions begin.  Regardless of certification status, teachers who are late to Induction must make up any missed time in the evenings during NTB Induction Office Hours, or get an exemption from their School Director.


Food & Amenities


NTB does not provide any beverages during Induction (e.g. coffee, bottled water, etc.).  Please come prepared with your own coffee and/or water bottle if desired. 


You should plan to bring your breakfast and lunch each day. During Induction, you will not have access to food service establishments while on the YES Prep East End campus. Lunch time is limited and we recommend staying on campus in order to avoid missing time.  Because of space constraints, we will not be able to guarantee access to a refrigerator or microwave.




We are preparing you for professional work at your schools.  Therefore, it is important to engage in professional dress to be prepared to meet the expectations of your districts/campuses. Attire at both Orientation and Induction will be business casual (no jeans, flip flops, t-shirts, or short skirts).  Need ideas on what to wear?  Click here.
