Title: How do school districts mentor new teachers?
Description: This report provides a snapshot of school district policies for mentoring new teachers in five REL Central states (Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota). State education agencies collected survey data from school districts on: who provides mentoring; how mentoring time changes after the first year; whether mentors are expected to observe their mentees; whether mentors are required to get training; whether mentors are paid stipends for their work; and district barriers to implementing mentor programs. Respondents from nearly 1,000 school districts, including superintendents and other district administrative leaders, completed the survey. The report also provides suggested next steps for district and state leaders to consider in light of the survey findings and current research.
