Beginning Teacher Assistance Program

Just as the quality of instruction that students receive has a tremendous impact on their performance, the quality of mentoring that new teachers receive can significantly influence their development. This system of support and optional in-district coaching provides a district with the infrastructure to develop a confident beginning teacher and capable mentor. This series meets the Initial Professional Certification (IPC) requirement of participating in a beginning teacher assistance program and aligns to the new Missouri Teacher Standards.

In-district support provided by NWRPDC staff, further supports a teacher’s first year at a deeper, more individualized level. Please contact RPDC office for information or click on link below.
