Lead Mentors serve as a resource to Mentors, providing guidance and assistance related to best-practices of supporting novice educators. Additionally, Lead Mentors oversee Year 3 and Year 4 of the program.
CIP Mentors are responsible for providing direct one-on-one support for novice educators in Years 1 & 2 of the Comprehensive Induction Program. Mentors serve primarily as a coach who supports and encourages the new educator(s) during their first and second year of induction. They assist the new educator(s) in looking at their current level of practice in classroom environment, planning and preparation, and instruction. Mentors also conduct non-evaluative observations of novice educators and provide actionable feedback based on the evidence observed.
