The Instructional Division of the Christian County Public Schools had designed a new program “Teacher Induction” that will assist teachers new to the district in getting connected with community and school programs.
CCPS Instructional Coach, Jettie Payne explained that the previous programs similar to this their “Right Start” program.
Payne said she had over 80 new hires attend both day one and two of the program. She said that the school board has given them the “autonomy and liberty to do what they needed to revive the program.”
New teachers will receive mentors for the 2021-22 school year that are either in the same building as them or teach the same grade and subject matter.
Payne said that she hopes this will result in a high retention rate for the following school year.
