The mentoring and induction for beginning administrators is sponsored by School Administrators of Iowa (SAI). This one year program supports the Iowa Standards for School Leaders (ISSL), as well as beginning administrators’ professional and personal needs. The mentoring and induction program provides support, professional development, and access to various resources to ensure leadership focused on improved teaching and student learning.
More information can be found on the SAI website (http://www.sai-iowa.org/mentoring).
Beginning Administrators Mentoring and Induction Data Collection and Funding
Each fall, districts and AEAs complete a data collection showing the number of beginning administrators that qualify for Mentoring and Induction Program funding. Qualifying districts and AEAs receive a payment for each semester.
