BTSA (Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment) is a statewide program that has been in place in California since 1992. It evolved from the California New Teacher Project from 1988 to 1991, where its success rate was phenomenal in terms of retaining new teachers, as well as helping them perform more effectively for a variety of students in their first years of teaching.
