Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Requires a public school to develop, establish, and implement a new teacher induction and mentoring program to assist new teachers in developing the skills and strategies necessary for instructional excellence, provided that funding is made available by the State Board of Education from an appropriation made for this purpose. For each new teacher participating in a new teacher induction and mentoring program, requires the State Board of Education to pay the public school $1,200 annually for each of 2 school years, subject to appropriation. Provides that the State Board of Education may retain up to $1,000,000 of the appropriation for purposes related to new teacher induction and mentoring programs. Includes provisions concerning program requirements and the evaluation of programs.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 Senate Bill 533 creates a state service mandate and school districts would not have to comply unless the grants were funded by state appropriation through the State Board of Education. The FY04 State Board budget recommends $11 million for a teacher mentoring and induction program. Assuming approximately 6,350 new teachers per year at $1,200 each, the program would cost approximately $7.6 million in the first year and approximately $15 million for the second year and all future years.
