NOVICE TEACHER PROGRAM
Who qualifies as a Novice Teacher? Any educator in their first 3 years as a teacher of record qualifies as a Novice Teacher. Educators with ZERO teaching experience are YEAR I novices. Educators with ONE year teaching experience are YEAR II novices. Educators with TWO yeas as a teacher of record are YEAR III novices. Teachers with appropriate out-of-state experience are not required to enter the Novice Teacher Program. It is a district decision if charter/private school experienced teachers enter the Novice Teacher Program.
This is a place for novice and veteran teachers to find resources and services that will improve student learning and educational opportunities. An effective teacher is not defined by years of experience. An effective teacher is one that contributes to student growth. The goal of this department is to create, grow, and learn from effective teachers.
