The New Teacher Induction program is designed to support new teachers in their first years with us.

The Induction program will include several different ways we provide support, including site-based mentors and monthly opportunities to meet with and learn from others.

For information, staff can find detailed information and induction on the Induction Google Site.

Seminars and Ongoing Professional Development

Induction is a year-long process, addressing needs for new teachers in different phases of their first year. Ongoing professional development is based on both individual and instructional needs as the year progresses.

Monthly Seminars

Each seminar is developed with a long-range plan that addresses the growth of the teacher throughout the year. Seminars include multiple models of delivery to address the variety of teacher needs.

Differentiation

Specific professional learning experiences are designed to address the needs of teachers based on experience and expertise:

  • New Teachers in their first full year
  • New Teachers with some experience (<5 years)
  • Veteran Teachers from other districts
  • Conditionally Certified Teachers

Further, differentiated professional development is designed to address specific content and program needs.
