Preparation for NTB Induction

Induction will be your first glimpse into what it is like to be a teacher at YES Prep, plan using the resources provided to you, and execute system-wide practices.  It is the start of what can be a steep learning curve that will continue throughout your first semester and year at YES Prep.  It is our vision that you leave Induction with the skills necessary to manage a classroom, plan lessons, and become a contributing member of your campus faculty on Day 1. During Induction, you will meet your colleagues involved in this learning experience, along with the Instructional Coaches, Induction Teacher Leaders, the NTB Certification and Operations Coordinators, and other staff committed to your support. 


Please read the following page carefully for information about Pre-Induction Assignments, Induction dates, times, and logistical information. *Please note: Attendance at New to Blue Induction is required.*

NTB Pre-Induction Assignments

Each of the following required items is due to prior to July 17th, unless otherwise specified.


Fingerprinting and Background Check

Any participant in the New to Blue program must gain their official Texas Educators Certification Fingerprints via Morphotrust (the official vendor of TEA/SBEC).  The 2007 Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 9 requiring fingerprint-based criminal background reviews for certain school employees in Texas Public schools. Senate Bill 9 is codified in Texas Education Code (TEC), Chapter 22, Subchapter C. 


You’ve already received communication from YES Prep with instructions on how to successfully complete this requirement.  Please reach out to with any questions.

NTB Pre-Admission Survey

This survey gives New to Blue critical information that will allow us to admit you into the program and ensure that you are placed on the correct track of development.  Please be sure to complete this survey (link below) accurately and thoroughly, as this information will be used throughout the year.  Please be sure to take note of your official first and last names.  If you are undergoing a name change at any point during your participation in NTB, please let us know at
