New Teacher Induction Program
Bulloch County Schools helps provide new teachers support through its New Teacher Induction Program. Held in addition to the school district's New Hire Orientation, it is a 10-session training led by the district's team of instructional coaches.
New educators meet once per month throughout the school year. Session topics are created based on feedback from new teachers and their school-based mentors regarding the needs of new teachers.
"This allows the program to be flexible and responsive to the needs of each individual new teacher cohort," said Ragan Adkins, a director of school improvement. Adkins and fellow School Improvement Director Millie Boykin lead the program.
Begun in 2015, the program supports new teachers by communicating the school district's values and it models best practices for student learning with engaging instructional strategies, proper classroom management techniques, and positive behavior interventions.
