|2013-2014 Oregon Beginning Teacher and Administrator Mentoring Program Grant Awarded|
The Beginning Teacher and Administrator Mentoring Program was established by the state through the passage of the 2007 Legislature’s HB 2574. In 2013, under the leadership of Governor John Kitzhaber, the Oregon Education Investment Board proposed key strategic investments to support Oregon’s attainment of 40/40/20. Key to this work is a revitalization of the education profession and the establishment of a Network of Quality Teaching and Learning.
Conceptualized and passed by legislature in HB 3233, the Network provides funding for a comprehensive system of support for educators that creates a culture of leadership, professionalism, continuous improvement and excellence for teachers and leaders across the P-20 system. The Oregon Mentoring Program is an important component of this work. It is designed to support activities related to a research-based mentorship program for beginning teachers and administrators. A total of 1,128 teachers will receive support and 135 principals/superintendents will have a mentor as a result of the Oregon Mentoring Grant.
The Oregon Department of Education has awarded the following entities Oregon’s 2013-14 Mentoring Grant for Beginning Teachers and Administrators:
