Statewide Beginning Teacher Assistance Program

2018-2019 Beginning Teacher Assistance Cohort Registration is Open Now!

Three cohorts are available for your convenience.  Districts are encouraged to split their new teachers/mentors over the three cohorts so they can all benefit from the regional networking, guest expert speakers, and powerful learning and support this program provides.  

Cohort 1                Cohort 2               Cohort 3                                                              

Each cohort has its own optional Paired Learning Experience as well.  Through this additional experience teachers have the opportunity to expand their learning into application as they team with their cohort mentors for reflective planning, coaching, and feedback.  It is highly recommended that all new teachers participate in both a BTAP Cohort and the corresponding Paired Learning Cohort for maximum induction support within the first year.
