Teacher Induction Program

New Bees Teacher Induction Program
Calhoun City Schools believes a quality education for our students begins with qualified personnel who support the mission and vision of the district.  Calhoun City Schools New Bees, Teacher Induction Program, provides targeted support to new teachers during Years 1-3 of the profession, as well as experienced teachers who are hired into our school system during their first year with the CCS family. Induction teachers are paired with an experienced teacher within their grade level or department who serves as their mentor. The mentor teachers guide and teach our induction teachers the “Calhoun way” and are role models for our commitment to the high standard of excellence that our school system upholds. Calhoun City’s Teacher/Leader Development and Instructional Technology Specialists collaborate as a team to facilitate focused monthly meetings with the New Bees groups, provide targeted support and feedback to induction teachers in the classroom setting, and support mentors in their role as teacher leaders. The CCS New Bees Program strives to provide a wide realm of support to newly hired teachers with the goal of instilling high expectations, while building strong relationships among our school system family. Calhoun City feels this program and the support it provides is vital in attracting and retaining the very best teachers.
