Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the New Teacher Induction and Mentoring Article of the School Code. Changes the heading of the Article and the definition of "new teacher". Provides that, beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, the State Board of Education shall develop a program to provide grants to mentor training providers to establish a training program for new teacher mentors, and requires each public school to use a teacher induction and mentoring program provided by a mentor trained through a mentor training provider (rather than requiring a public school to develop a new teacher induction and mentoring program). Makes changes concerning program requirements, funding and stipends, the evaluation of programs, and obsolete references. Effective immediately.
