The San Luis Obispo County Teacher Induction Program (TIP) consortium partners with the New Teacher Center to provide support to mentors of new teachers. According to a study recently conducted by the US Department of Education, students gain up to five months of additional learning when new teachers receive high-quality mentoring through the New Teacher Center’s induction model.

This year, our induction program is undergoing some significant changes focused on the mission of improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers, experienced teachers, and school leaders. The backbone of these changes is the intent to create Optimal Learning Environments for all students.In an Optimal Learning Environment, the social and emotional elements of learning are prioritized and understood to be the foundation of academic success and personal well-being. To learn more about this framework, please view the New Teacher Center Optimal Learning Environment Framework Graphic.

All of us play a critical role in supporting our new teachers. Knowing that we are working together to facilitate their growth is cause for celebration in our county.
