ROE #3 Awarded New Teacher Induction & Mentoring Program Grant

The Regional Office of Education #3 received positive news recently, as they have been awarded the New Teacher Induction and Mentoring Program Grant for 27 beginning teachers and mentors. Julie Wollerman, Regional Superintendent of Schools, told Regional Radio News the money from the grant will help mentors and new teachers with their training.

Research has shown that support in mentoring new teachers leads to better outcomes for students. Wollerman stated the state budget impasse raises the questions of whether they’ll receive the monies for the second year.

Wollerman noted the current grant that has been approved for this year is approximately $33,000. That amount will be used to serve 30 new teachers. She is unsure when next year comes if that would be the same amount or if any monies will be available for next year.
