Oregon Beginning Teacher and Administrator Mentor Workshop Facilitator Application Now Available!
In 2007, the Oregon Legislature passed HB 2574 authorizing the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to establish a beginning teacher and administrator mentoring program. The Oregon Mentoring Project was started to provide support to beginning teachers, principals, and superintendents. In 2013, under the leadership of Governor John Kitzhaber, the Network of Quality Teaching and Learning was established. 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 an evidence-based mentorship program for beginning teachers and administrators. The grants fund individual school districts or consortia comprised of school districts, ESDs, and universities. Grant-in-Aid has been allocated yearly beginning in 2008.

Oregon Mentoring Program Standards adopted!
At the August 2014, State Board of Education Meeting, the
Oregon Mentoring Program Standards
were adopted! Mentoring Program Standards describe the structures and functions, processes, and effective practices necessary for a quality program. Effective mentoring is foundational to a quality program. An essential element of a mentoring program is a professional mentor who understands and utilizes the skills, strategies and tools necessary for the continuous development of teachers and administrators.
Mentoring Impact Information
Students in Oregon deserve absolutely the best principals and teachers we can give them. The Oregon Mentoring Program can help make that happen. Fifty percent of beginning teachers leave the profession in their first five years. The Oregon Mentoring Program can change that. Teachers who have been mentored have greater gains in student achievement than teachers who have not been mentored. For the sake of the students, Mentoring Works!
