District implements processes to strengthen induction programs and support effective coaching and mentoring systems.
Why is this important?
The best way to impact the educator preparation process is through engaging pre-service teachers and principals for a portion of their training at the school site, providing clinically-rich experiences (Darling-Hammond, 2014).
Well-developed induction programs that are implemented with fidelity and include mentoring, can increase teacher retention and effectiveness (Matlach & Potemski, 2014).
How can TxCEE help?
Implement our Texas Teacher Residency Program (TxTRP) or Texas Principal Residency Program (TxPRP) to support novice educators.
TxTRP is a specialized mentoring and induction program for novice teachers that focuses on practices that create collaborative and cohesive environments and fosters positive interdependence and individual accountability.
TxPRP is a specialized leadership development program that focuses on equipping novice principals to positively and systematically impact school culture, educator development, and student achievement.
