Title II-A - Mentoring

Educator Effectiveness


HB2574 was signed into law in July 2007 and provided support and funding for the creation of a beginning teacher, beginning administrator mentoring program. In addition to helping transition beginning teachers and administrators into the classrooms/schools and acculturate them to the specific school and district setting in which they will work, the goal of the mentor program is to provide support and services for teachers and administrators with less than three years of experience that results in, quality instruction and leadership, student achievement, and retention of new teachers and administrators. Ultimately the desire is to cultivate and build the capacity of teaching professionals who can foster complex student learning. Biennially since 2007, the Oregon legislature has provided general funds to support the Oregon Beginning Teacher, Beginning Administrator Mentoring Program. When leveraged with other funds creates a robust system of addressing the state's mentoring needs.
