The Regional Office of Education #3 (ROE #3) has been awarded the New Teacher Induction and Mentoring Program Grant. 27 teachers in ROE #3 will participate in the grant funded program. ROE #3 includes Effingham, Fayette, Bond, Christian, and Montgomery Counties.
Regional Superintendent Julie Wollerman expressed her excitement about her office winning the grant. “This will be a great service we can offer the teachers and schools of our region,” she said.
The grant will allow for beginning teachers to have an individual mentor as they transition into the classroom. Research has shown that support in mentoring new teachers leads to better outcomes for students.
The grant program is considered a two year program and will run from February 2016 through June 2017.
