Support for New Teachers

The Grain Valley School District uses a three-year induction program that starts with first-year teachers. The purpose is threefold:

  • Support (Mentors): To reduce the anxiety of transitioning into teaching.
  • Retention: To expand the retention of highly qualified teachers.
  • Training: To instruct teachers in techniques that ensure student success.

While we have an Induction Program, Induction is actually an organized process that entails training and ongoing support for new teachers. The induction teams consist of administrators, mentors, staff developers, and effective, experienced classroom teachers.
