New Teacher Support

The foundation of the Tolleson Union High School District professional development plan is the belief that building the capacity of all stakeholders will result in an increase in student achievement. The efforts associated with this belief range from job embedded professional development aligned to school improvement efforts, regular early dismissal days, a district-wide building capacity conference, data-driven decision-making, and a comprehensive evaluation system.

The Tolleson Union High School District Professional Development Division, collaborating with the TIP PK-12 Consortium, provides a comprehensive support structure for beginning teachers. The support includes a comprehensive summer induction, weekly (bi-weekly for the second year teacher) observation/conference sessions with a district mentor, frequent professional development sessions, and much more. Tolleson Union High School District strives to increase the quality of professional development and expand the opportunities available by growing and training well prepared educational leaders.

The district mentors play a central role in the new teacher support. The mentor assignments are based on the observation/conference demands of both New Teachers and Beginning Teachers. The mentor assignments for this year are as follows:
