New Teacher Center


This grant supports a new partnership between New Teacher Center (NTC) and DPSCD to establish the district’s first formal new teacher mentoring program. This capacity building plan is centered around professional learning that is intentionally aligned to DPSCD’s kindergarten through eight grade English language arts (ELA) and Math curricula, as well as the district’s teaching framework, the Vision of Excellent Instruction. With a focus on building DPSCD internal capacity, over the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years, NTC will implement curriculum-focused teacher induction training to approximately 250 school-based mentors in DPSCD.
