The purpose of our comprehensive induction program for beginning teachers is to provide them with a network of highly qualified mentors who offer emotional, knowledgeable, and technical supports that improve student learning and achievement.
The results of our comprehensive induction program will be the development of a collegial learning community that is committed to the ongoing growth of new and veteran teachers and the development of a successful learning environment for all students.
