Hi! Do I need to be working on lesson plans before I'm hired or will the school district have something to work off of?

I'm close to finishing my pre-hire coursework and will begin looking for a job soon. I'm new to teaching and wondering if I will need to come up with lesson plans for the whole year, or if there will be something from the district or other teachers to work off of for the first year? What has been your experience?

      Most districts will give you a pacing calendar with specific standards to teach for that 6wks/9wks/etc. Then, you will be required to create lesson plans based on their desired pacing.
